I am 51 years old and I remember Dave from my childhood. He was a wonderful friend and bowling and pool buddy to my father for many, many years and I have tender memories of him. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
Dave was a great individual who had an unmatched competitive spirit in everything he attempted. He was
a great bowler and back in the day, was a permanent fixture at Ercildoune Lanes. Dave was also a par golfer
and a legend when he played pool. He will be missed.
Our deepest condolences to his family.
Uncle Dave , thank you for always being such a loving, kind, and patient uncle. Thank you for all of your help with my golf and bowling swings, both of them hopeless, but you tried!
I find comfort in knowing you could not have planned a better exit, if you had planned it yourself. We will always love and miss you, go rest high on that mountain. Love Always, Karen Sue
Verna, so sorry for your loss. Uncle Dave was such a gentle, distinguished, kind-hearted man. Heaven gained a good one this time. Thinking about you and praying for you at such a hard time. Blessings to you.
Mr. Dave, you will be missed by all who were blessed to have crossed your path. I will even miss the "fear" I felt when I looked across the pool table and saw your smiling face, knowing I was about to get beat, again, by you. R.I.P.
Thoughts, prayers and love to Verna and family. Will miss seeing him.
Dave got me a job at Indian River Electric in the 70's when I really needed it. He was a good friend and a great Bowler and Pool Player. Prayers going out to Verna and Family.
