|Dave was a wonderful & fascinating man -- well-traveled, well-read, and infinitely curious. He could talk to anyone about just about anything. He was both remarkable and challenging, but always entertaining & colorful. He will be missed by many.....|
Dear beloved friends and family,
We created this memorial to give all of us a place to share our many memories of Dave. He touched so many people - more than we ever realized - and it is our hope that by sharing these memories we'll do what he would have wanted us to do - stay connected, expand our horizons, and in the process have fun & a good laugh - preferably with a bottle of (cheap!) wine somewhere nearby. He would have liked that.
Kate & Bill
"Always think of you Dave and thank you for the great joy and sense of adventure you brought into our lives over the years. Wish I could share a glass of wine with you. :) Well I had one anyway yesterday. Wish you were still here."
It's been a crazy year and even crazier past 6 months! Really miss being able to talk to you. I think we got it all sorted. 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year!
"Hi Dad. Thought about you a lot recently. Miss you. I hope you're someplace interesting with a glass of wine in your hand & surrounded by good friends.
"Raising a glass of red wine in a toast to you Dave! Fond memories always"
"A: "Now Dear.... You're a day older- and I'm a day late"
"Hi Dad. Missing you.
"Missing you Dave! Summer is here and wishing you could once again stop by to grill some fish and open a bottle or two....."
I know you hate birthdays, but today you'd be spry 82 and we'd be wishing you a happy birthday whether you liked it or not! I miss talking to you - getting your advice and insight on just about everything - work, current events, history, sports, music, and life.
"Happy Birthday Dave!
I thought of you while hiking along the ocean side in Carmel on this beautiful sunny day. I know how you liked the sea and then I giggled to myself when I thought you would not have liked the hiking part. But you would have been proud because Bill and I brought wine! ;)
"We miss you Dave; remembering a fabulous trip to Eastern Turkey with you, mom and dad. An adventure from start in Lake Van to finish in Trabajon on the Black Sea."
"I miss you Dad."
"Was thinking of Dave and my father, Boris, this past father's day. What fun we had searching for fossils, skiing, sailing, visiting ruins in Turkey. Very precious memories. The spark of adventure was always present when Dave was around. I miss his sense of fun and adventure and will cherish his invaluable support to my family always."
"I still find it hard to believe that Dave has passed on. He was a huge part of my life from a small child to a middle aged adult...and was ALWAYS there to help. I would go for years not seeing him...and then he would arrive....a bottle of wine in hand...and we just picked up where we left off. He taught us all how to enjoy life. We miss you Dave!"
"Happy Birthday Dave! We are all thinking of you.
Just wanted to wish a Happy Birthday. Thinking of you.
"Thinking of you Dave. xoxo
Happy Father's day. We miss you.
"Happy Birthday Dave! We miss you!"
"Happy 80th Dad!"
"I had the honor and pleasure of being Dave’s friend. I also had the special privilege of conducting Dave’s estate sale. Hundreds of people attended the sale and all wanted to know about the man who had owned all those wonderful things. Just as Kate noted, all his treasures are still being treasured. Thank you Kate and Bill…and thank you Dave."
Im sorry we didn't get much time to hang out as a family, but the time we did spdnd together was Awesome. You enriched all of our luves with yoyr knowledge and compassion, and miss it everyday that you are gone. I hope u are in a safe place and having a great time cause we are all looking forward go seeing one day. Thankyou. Love Nick"
"Uncle Dave was a wonderful man, he was always happy and always seemed to have so many stories to tell. I remember when he would come to visit us in Key West when we lived there. He taught us how to make pizza for lunch and he we always tip the surf board over. He always had something funny. Never did I see him without a smile. You will be dearly missed and forever loved."
"Remembering Dave will always bring a smile to my face. He was so full of life and always fun to be around. My memories are of cooking with him, he did the fish and I did the rest, many laughs and fun conversation. Dave was a big part of the Sokoloff family, there is empty seat at the table."
"My dear family,
I remember Dave as fun loving, always a wonderful host. 2 incidents come to mind: The RV trip we all took and dinner on the houseboat with raccoons! I know how much you miss him, but he is always with you -memories will never fade. Love, Ann"
