    My deepest sympathy goes to Dave’s entire family. Dave was a great person, solid friend, and very proud father. For years, I saw his impact on the children he trained in martial arts. He always impressed me with his patience and passion for helping children. What I will miss most is his sense of humor. I never knew what he would say next. But, he always brightened my day. He made you feel like you were more than friends,…like family. People like him are hard to come by.

    My deepest sympathies to the family. Dave was one of the first friends I made when I moved to the area in 1972 we reunited in the last few years and spent time fishing together on Lake Erie. You could always count on having a good day on the lake when Dave was aboard.

    Such a great loss to his family, friends and community. I am so glad I knew him and could call him a friend. He was always passionate about sharing his knowledge, yet took the time to teach and not lecture – especially with kids. My whole family was saddened to hear of his passing. God bless.

    I’m sure that smile and positivity is what brought David and you together, and created the happiness that you shared as one.
