  1. So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing and my wife and I would like to offer my sincere condolences to his family. I had the opportunity to work with Dave through the years on many unique projects since 1985 till 2006. I would like the world to know it was a pleasure working with him along with others and knowing him as a friend. He was always talking about horses and the pleasure that his wife and daughters had regarding horse riding and horse events. He also bent my ear frequently talking about his son Mike and his baseball events and how proud he was of his family. I know that up in heaven, the Lord will have plenty of projects that Dave’s expertise can be utilized on and God bless the Lord for the opportunity of being part of Dave’s life.
