Dave will be deeply missed by his family and friends. He was an honest man that worked hard to provide for his family and greatly cared about the people closest to him. There was never a dull moment while watching sports with Dave; he always believed he could coach through the tv. Holidays were special; he was always fond of painting his Christmas ceramic villages and carving pumpkins but especially cherished memorable time with the family together. He loved spending his time outdoors. His most enjoyable hobbies were hunting, fishing and simply gazing at the stars while sitting next to a fire.
