Memories Timeline


  1. Condolences to the family. I worked with Dave a number of years and he was always a great manager, friend and person you could talk to.

  2. We think about the summer of “97”, it was a pleasure being house mates and how well it worked out. Praying for God’s comfort for all of you.

  3. Dave, It was a pleasure meeting you in person even if for the few months! Thank you so much for all the help. You will be greatly missed.

  4. Ray and Sandi Steele
    Dave was a wonderful neighbor and a great friend to me and all who knew him. I remember seeing the lights on in his wood shop early into the morning busy crafting wonderful gifts for some lucky people. We both laughed when we discovered that we had the same birthdate, and sent each other cards for years, Man, even though we have moved, I’m gonna miss you Dave.

  5. We didn’t know Dave long, but alway felt like family when together. Wish we had more time together.
    You will be miss my friend. Steve and Debbie Anderson.

  6. I knew Dave for many years, we worked for the same company. Always enjoyed the time we spent together and he was only 5 days younger then me. My thoughts are with his family.

  7. Condolences to Dave’s family from the Perham class of 68. Life doesn’t end when one dies, it just changes.
