Dave lived most of his Lincoln School years about four or five houses down Main Street from my house. We had lots of fun playing and getting in various stages of boyhood trouble. My Mom often spoke of Dave taking the time to stop and talk to her when he saw her outside. Dave's a great guy and will be missed.

Dear DiAnna and family,

DiAnna we are so sorry to hear of Daves passing. With us living in Indiana we did not know of his passing until it was too late and did not make it to the wake.
We all remember the working years at FMC. They were good years.
Dave will certainly be missed and we will keep you and your family in our prayers.

DiAnna and family, I am sorry to hear of Dave's illness and your loss. I met Dave at a Cornelius family reunion at Pells Park and felt an instant kinship for him. In future years I always looked forward to seeing him there. We would talk of kids, baseball, hunting and fishing. Dave will be greatly missed.

DiAnna and family I am so sorry for your loss...I grew very close to your family in the short time of taking care of him in the hospital. May God bring you peace in this time of need. I will continue you to pray for your family! May God bless you!

Our deepest sympathy goes out to you DiAnna and your family. Dave was a
very good working friend at FMC and the time working together there will
always remain in my thoughts. After moving to Germany, I still thought alöt
on Dave. Sorry that we lost contact with each other. He will be very missed.
