Dave was one of my best friends back in the 80’s when I really needed them. Our trip together to explore Nashville and its music heritage was a lifetime experience. He was an honest and honorable man. RIP

Barbara and Brandon, the 2 older boys both called to tell us of David's passing. We are very sorry to hear of your loss. We haven't seen you for awhile but have many fond memories of conversations with David. Will never forget Kindergarten assessment when you both said we are the old parents in the group. Everyone laughed but it was so not true. Plenty of others. We were talking tonight of sitting at ball games by you. David was enjoyable to always chat with. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and May David rest in peace. Joyce and Gary Senter and family
