David, Deb, Denise and Sandy & families, I am so very sorry for the loss you have all suffered. Take comfort in memories and help each other through this difficult time. I grew very fond of him and enjoyed his company and wit. He was a good dad. Please take solace knowing he is reunited with your mom and family gone before him. I love you all, please reach out to me anytime for comfort or an ear to listen, and a shoulder to lean on.

Thinking about you. Always love you.
Dear Debbie and family. We are so sorry for your loss of your dad. There are no words in the English Dictionary to express how you are feeling at this time.
The memories that you shared will always be with you. Remembering his smile, laughter, wit and advise , and the good times you had with him not just as a grown daughter but when you were a child growing up. Time heals everyone and in due time you will heal in your own way and knowing that you have support around you will certainly help.
He is at rest and in a much happier place and ready to start a new life in the most magical place there along side your mom together again.
God bless you and your family. You have all our love from this side of the family.
Our deepest condolences,
Wally and Chrissy
Paul and Marie

So sorry to hear of Uncle Dave’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We all shared so many great family memories of card games, cookouts, golfing and camping. We were lucky to have such great times! He is with his beautiful Claire now. I will think of them both when I drive by Old Silver Beach!!💗
