We are so sorry to hear of David's passing. What marvelous memories we have of our two families involved in fire department activities and in just being friends. Our prayers go out to all of you.

I was VERY shocked to hear about Dave's passing today. Although we hadn't seen each other since Ashland High School, I have fond memories of performing with him in a few productions like A Walk Across America when he played the lead role of Peter Jenkins. To all of the rest of the family, you have my sincere condolence and I hope that you find some peace in knowing he's finally done with that monster cancer... it's taking way too many of us way too soon.
I have a one or two pictures of us together in those high school productions if you'd like I can scan and email them to you whenever you like.

Again, my deepest condolence.

I cannot find the words to describe my feelings upon learning of Dave's passing. Words like shock and sadness are an incredible understatement.

Dave was the source of a bottomless pit of laughter and friendship during our high school years, and I will always remember him with much fondness and love.

Lifting you all up in prayer, asking the Comforter to send His strength now and in the difficult days to come. May the Lord bless you and keep you.

So sorry for your loss. David was a great guy to work with at Ashland Fire Dept when there were volunteers. He will be greatly missed.

Dave's illness and leaving so soon was very difficult to hear this week. So many years gone by, so many words unsaid. He has always been in my heart, and certainly was one of the most generous, caring, and selfless persons I have ever had the honor to know. Thoughts of him over the last couple of days have brought many tears, but a lot of laughter. He turned every mundane thing into a bit of humor and I will never forget his sparkling light blue eyes, his carefree smile, and the sound of his voice, especially his infectious laugh. The best years of my entire life were my decade spent with Dave. I'm very sad his final months were such a struggle, but relieved he is no longer in pain, and hopefully, riding on a train somewhere beyond those Pearly Gates and loving every moment of it. Praying that His peace surrounds all who love him; you all have my sincerest sympathy.

I'm so sorry to hear about David's death. I know he had been having health issues for quite a while and now he can be at peace. I've been thinking over the past few days of the times he and Tim did things together. They camped in our back yard and actually were ice skating one winter when the yard was frozen. It didn't matter how many times David fell he got back up and did it again. I'm pretty sure they were both involved with a western movie that was being made one summer with several kids from the church. They had some good times and entertained the rest of us with their activities. We will continue to think about you all and keep you in our prayers.
