Richard and I send our love and sympathy to you, Barb, he so deeply loved and to Dave Jr,, Jen, Rich and his adored grandkids, Brooke and Ava. Dave was such a kind, intelligent, gracious man who we had such nice times with at Princeton Place. We had a great visit with Dave and Barb at a local restaurant the night Dave passed and they had such a special time even dancing a bit. Dave will be missed by all his many friends.

I was stunned to hear about Dave's passing and my heart goes out to Barbara and the family. After we had our Christmas sing-along at the Senior Center, Dave told me how his grandchildren would have enjoyed it and he hoped they would be singers too. Dave was a true gentleman and it was a pleasure to talk to him. In years past, he was of immense help in our yard sales, untiring and serene despite the stress of unpacking and pricing innumerable objects. At the bar too, we will miss his cheerful smile as he handed out drinks. May his soul rest in peace!

My heartfelt condolences to you, Barbara, and your famiyy. Dave was what I would call a “classic”-such a gentleman! My special memories are our fun filled events at The Center! We laughed, giggled, and yes, there was dancing! And of course, Dave the bartender- service with a smile and he had great smile.
