    Norman OKMy heartfelt sympathy to David’s family and friends. I remember his big smile. Randal and I were his hunting buddies years back. I truly enjoyed those times with David. He and Randal are probably discussing all their hunting trips. Bless you David.

    Seymour MissouriWell I remember David entering this world, eleven days after my son, Rory Boeddeker was born. Family joke was that his mother, Ruthie, and I were in a race and all bets were that David would arrive first. We remember many fun and wonderful days with the Lusso family in the 50’s and 60’s. May David rest in peace.

    Omaha NEDavid was always a happy and funny guy. When I was in high school, he frequently came out to the farm to see my family. I remember my mother saying, “David’s here!” and he would walk right in. He like to hold my little sister upside down so she could “walk on the ceiling”.
    His sudden death is a shock to all who knew him..

    Hillsboro My sympathies to Dave’s family at this difficult time. I have many fond memories of Dave from the years I played softball for the Vet’s Club. He was always ready to go on game night and made the games/tournaments fun. Dave would always stop conversation with others to greet me if we passed one another at the store, gas station, etc. May you all find the strength to understand God’s plan for Dave as he was taken much too soon from those who knew him.

    I have many wonderful memories of David. I remember him playing the trumpet in our HS band. He took me to my first Prom and to my first concert. The beautiful sunrise this morning reminded me of him. He always had that smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes. I will always remember him.
