    I played football with Dave at Lakeview HS. On the team he was a leader who always had a big smile and a bunch of good jokes.
    We both worked in medical so until I move to Atlanta we got to see each other and I would alway walk away thinking what a great man he had become.
    Proud to say “he was a great friend.”

    I’m so fortunate to have this man as my grandfather. He was hardworking, strong, loving and gentle. He loved his family and there was never a dull moment with him. He taught me the importance of life. He showed strength and love right up until his last day. I love you and we’re down here missing you so much already. I know he’s comfortable now. I know he’s at rest.
    They’re lucky to have you in heaven, until we meet again papa.
