Linda, so sorry for you loss. Another great person taken from us way too soon. Dave was 1 of 2 of my best and oldest friends. I met Dave when I was 8 years old and we stayed in touch and socialized with him the last 68 years. Dave and I and the “Pinehurst Gang” spent countless hours across the street from his house on Epiphany’s playground playing baseball, football and whatever games we made up. As adults, Dave, Paul D’Angelo and I went on numerous camping/fishing trips and also weekends on Paul’s Sea Ray. I even managed to talk Dave into going on a couple of Caribbean cruises on the Princess cruise lines. He will be sorely missed by my wife and I. Good friends like him are so hard to find. Thanks for all the memories my friend and I hope to meet up with you again! ❤️

So sad to write a memorial for someone gone to soon. My favorite memories of Uncle Dave go back to my childhood he use to play baseball with me and give me pointers, bought me my first Whopper and he and Connie took me to the movie theater to see The Sound of Musc which remains my all time favorite movie to this day. I hope my mom, grandma, grandpa and Jimmy we there to great you. You were very much loved and will be missed. I think all your kids know that I'll be here for them and we'll share memories. Rest now. Love you Kathy
