So very sad to hear this news of losing our David...he was always very good to me...he took my son, Alex under his wing and showed him the ropes of welding and even helped him get into the pipefitters. We had a lot of good times together and a lot of great memories...
He will always remain my CHAMP! Rest in peace. ❤

My heart and prayers are with Linda, Lauren, and all of Daves family. Daves humor and good nature will stay with me and Scott and all that knew him forever. Some of the best memories I have in my life were on the water with Dave. He looked after Scott and I many times when the waters were rough. He knew I was scared of the water and he would always come to find us and tell Scott, Jump on my tail Coxy, I'll get ya home." And he ALWAYS did. He had a way to make you laugh, even when you didn't want to. I know you're cruising on calm waters now Dave. Till we meet again. We love you and we will miss you. Rest Easy my friend.

Hate to hear this. Haven't seen him in years, but there are a lot of good memories with Dave. Always had a smile on his face and wanted to make those around him happy as well. RIP
