    In loving memory to a GREAT man, who loved his friends and family. Who will be missed as a soccer referee, big brother, and so many other ways that he gave to the community, his coworker, friends and family. Since my father past 2 years ago, he had been like a father to me. He was the one I called to discuss our sickness and get fatherly advice. I could always turn to Dave and expect for him to share his wisdom and knowledge even when he did not feel good. He made me laugh. Even though, Dave was a private person, he and I shared many talks lately about God, Heaven, Salvation, and death, and he was ready to meet His Savior. He loved children and prior to his sickness he had wanted to open a place for teens to go, he had dreams of working at a car wash, he loved garlic bologna. Whether it was going under my house with my husband to fix our plumbing, crawling around in the floor when my 23 yr old daughter was 4, teaching her gymnastics, refereeing kids soccer, being a part of the big brother organization, acting, the hospital business, HCA, and so many other things he loved, he always did everything with enthusiasm. The greatest gift I gave him was introducing him to his current wife, Doris. He was a man that demanded and deserve respect. A man of statue. They don’t make men anymore like Dave. He was my best friend, and my girls Godfather. We love you Dave! I am happy that you are in a better place, pain and sorrow free. but I miss you something horrible. Doris our prayers and thoughts are with you and all of the family. Last but not least, last week Dave was telling me how proud he was of all of his children and grand children. He went on to say how wonderful Doris had been to him through his sickness, spoke of their love, and he did not want to be a burden on her. Neither of us knew who would go first because of our terminal illness, but in our conversation last week we both decided this was going to be our year unless God gave us a miracle. We were both at peace with death. He always had a story for me. Love Sharon

    Truly sorry for your loss. We just met Dave in the last 10 years. I loved to tease him about our grandchildren getting tempers from their Italian grandpa. Truth is I never saw Dave angry . Always a smile on his face. I pray you are at peace in the arms of our Lord. Sandra and Jim

    All our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I remember being at your house Doris right after you had gone on one of your first dates with Dave. The moment I met him, I understood why you were so taken with him. He was a charismatic and wonderful man with such a glow in his eyes! I loved him and was grateful that he made you so happy! I wish we could be there to give you a big hug.

    All our love,
    Lori, Joey and Tobin

    I had the pleasure of knowing Dave some years ago. He was a patient in the dental office I worked in. I never knew Dave but what he didn’t have a HUGE smile on his face. He had a great spirit and such a way to put anyone at ease. My prayers are with his family as you transition through this big change in your life. May God’s peace and comfort fill your hearts as you hold dear the many wonderful memories you have.

    I first met Dave our freshman year in high school, and we played football and baseball together, we then started in the finance busn. the same time in the late 60’s and we worked and “played” together again. I visited Dave in June of 09 at his home. He was a proud man, a brave man, I shared a picture of Jesus with him that I have had since I was a kid. I told him that he alway watched over me and was my best friend. Dave told me that when he got the pic. in the mail he put it on his dresser and often referred to “our friend” keeping him company. Now he has the real thing, and I will miss him. I sent a private e-mail to Doris, but I want the public to know how much he loved his family, and the life that he had with Doris. We will miss that ever present smile.

    Oh how I loved this wonderful man. I just found out from Jerry Hussy of his passing. We used to work together at Perot Systems. I have never worked with anyone of whom I have enjoyed more. He is a wonderful man. We had several long discussions about family, life, and the here-after. We shared lots in common. We used to share our magic tricks with each other. I called him from time-to-time after I heard of his failing health.

    He will me missed and his name is good in my home and in my sociality with others. He will not be forgotten.
