I was very sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He always brought a smile to my face when he came in the shop, cracking jokes and telling stories. I'll sure miss his laugh and smile.

I went to school with Bambi and graduated with him. I remember being in 7th grade English class and what a riot he was. I'll miss all his stories.

I hear today of Dave's passing. Dave was such a riot to visit with as he alwasys had an opinion. Dave always knew what he needed for materials when he came to the store. We always had stories to share or repeat on things that had happened to us. We always had a good laugh about someome or just sharing a joke. We will miss him very much. Dave was one of the smartest down to earth persons I ever met.
