Dave was a big brother to me during his years as a State Farm Agent. He had the most wonderful, soothing voice and always called me on my birthday which made my day. I will never forget him. He is truly missed everyday. Thank you to the family for sharing such a great man!
Alaska wasn't the same without you this summer. Everywhere I turned was a memory of you. Missing you, your voice and your laugh very, very much my friend. Big hugs, XX B
Jennifer and family,
Patty and I are so sorry to learn about the passing of Dave. I had the great pleasure of meeting your Dad on one of my State Farm trips to Anchorage and we hit it off immediately - because we are both from Alabama. I always enjoyed being around your Dad, he was full of life and always made you feel like family. He will be missed!

Dave was my new neighbor on Lewter Hollow road and we talked truck to truck on occasions along the road. I liked him immediately and just learned that he had passed from us. May the Lord comfort all of his family and may he be at peace in heaven.
You are gone so suddenly from my life but you will never be gone from my heart. We had 35 years of friendship that spanned AK to FL for me and AL for you. As always, at a time like this I wish we had been together more often but I am grateful that we communicated on Thanksgiving day. The next time I see you, my friend it will be in the "great beyond" and I look forward to that too. I have lost a dear dear friend and the world has lost a truly good man. Rest in peace, Dave. I love you.
Merry Christmas Dave. I miss you and am heart broken at having lost you. 30+ years of friendship, my life will never be the same. I send Big Hugs to the heavens my friend.
My sympathy goes to his family, and he will be missed. He was a person with
great knowledge on so many things. He
will be missed by all the people he knew, and helped.
Sincere condolences to the family. I have known Dave for many years, first as my long time insurance agent, then as a neighbor, and always as a friend. What a special gentleman, truly one of a kind. How he looked so forward to being near his girls and his "grands". It is wonderful he had that time with them. I have missed him since he left our neighborhood, but I will never forget Big Dave, may he rest in eternal peace. Pat J.
Dave you were my State farm agent for over 20 years. I remember all the great stories and lots of laughs at the Chee. Condolences to the family. Rest in peace my friend
Dave was our State Farm agent in Alaska & helped us through our horrific loss in coping with Ron's permanent disabilities from being hit by an uninsured motorist. What a grand and gentle man. We are pleased to hear he had many dreams come true!
Dave always told me that he wanted to be remembered just "As a good man." He certainly will be thought of as that, and so much more. Dave was such a very good person, and so loved. The world is a bit dimmer without the twinkle in his eyes. He was "always there" for family and friends. I have many wonderful memories of Dave since 1986. I am sharing one photo that I took in Rarotonga. I hope it will bring a smile to Jennifer, Meredith, Mona and Lamar. We were all fortunate to be touched by Dave's bright light. He is greatly missed. My sympathy to all of his loving family and friends.
I miss you Daddy. You were the most amazing man I've ever known. I hope you can feel how much you are loved.
Dave was a good friend. He is greatly missed.
What a gentle person Dave has been. I appreciated his attention to business as a customer of his. Tipped a few at the "ABBY" to start his career as a State Farm agent. Family will miss a
good person here. Thanks Dave!! for
In the mid 80's, David did a surety bond for me to get my process servers license. I was a single mom with two kids and did not have the "liquid assets" needed for anyone to bond me. Well, he did and I still have that license and the money I made serving papers helped me so much with raising my two kids. I will always be grateful to him. He was a very, very kind person. My prayers will be with your family. RIP Mr. Cantor....
Dave was our State Farm agent for many, many years in Anchorage. He was so friendly to all his clients and never took himself too seriously. He had a joie de vivre that was contagious. We are sorry to hear of his passing and hope he had a chance to enjoy his brief retirement years. Condolences to his family.
Dave was my dear friend & State Farm agent for 26 years. We spoke frequently on the phone after he moved to Alabama and I had moved to Tucson. He planned to ride out and for a visit next summer. He spoke often of how happy he was with his new life...
He loved his girls and will be missed.
Dear Dave, Words cannot express the saddness I feel at hearing of your passing. You were a true friend; always ready with a joke and a laugh. I will keep your memory loved in my heart forever. Big hugs and much love to you my friend.
We were so sorry to hear about Dave. Our neighbor in Anchorage. He always stopped to chat while on his walk through "The Hood". He always had a funny story to tell to make you laugh.
We will miss him.
Lee and Sandee Bray
I love you Dave, I will see you again someday.
I am sorry to hear about Dave's passing. Although, it has been many years since I have seen Dave, I still recall with pleasure and amusement the time spent with him in the late 70's when we worked together. Dave knew how life should be lived.
Thanks for all your help and kindness. Rest in peace. Your brother,
So sorry I did not make it to your memorial service just sw it was yesterday. I he to kow I was one of the last people you talked to that day.. You will always be one of my favorite patients and you always made my day brighter when you came in the office. You were an amazing man who had a wonderful kind spirit. Your family will be in my prayers!
Rest in Brother! Sorry to see you go.
May God remember you for good and may you rest in His eternal paradise.
I am so sorry I didn't attend the memorial service yesterday. Just didn't know about it until today. Growing up around David, I'll always remember how special he was. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.
God bless you all in your time of sorrow.
Dave was a good neighbor in Ardmore Tennessee, Help him learn the ropes on a tractor, and was amazed how he kept his Barn and stuff in order, I just found out today about his death, Dave would let me borrow the shirt off his back, but I was scared to borrow anything from him because it was all Clean, Family he purched the farm beside me and his biggest thrill was his family and grandkids he had big plans for them to have fun on the farm , I lost my 25 year old daughter just before he purchased the farm and when I told him about the death of a child , big tears came down, I did not get to know him long, So long friend
P.S. Family I was there when he broke a piece off of his new tractor , Boy did that make him sick
The best of the best. I love you so much. The impression you made on my life is immeasurable. I will carry you in my heart always. Always my hero...
Our sincere condolences to Dave's family & friends. We met him briefly this past Summer & knew instantly he was a kind & genuine man with a terrific zest for life. He certainly will be missed by all the lives he touched.

My heart is heavy at the loss of such a "special" friend. My sympathies to his family.
"Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened."
Much Love & Big Hugs Dave!
I met David about two years ago having the honor of his company one to three days a week. He made me smile with his honesty and willingness to share his experiences. He is most definitely in Heaven laughing. God Bless his family and friends
Dave I will remember you think of you and pray for you. Rest In Peace Good Friend.
I met Dave in Rarotonga, Cook Islands in 1993. He was very much the father figure to me, listening toy problems, offering me advice, and kicking my butt when needed. All this by either email or telephone. Dave & I lived worlds apart. He in Alaska, me in New Zealand but he never forgot my birthday, nor I his. His premature death has shocked and saddened me deeply. He was so full of life and embraced it with a passion. Dr Dave THe Dixie Rave was how he first introduced himself to me. But he will always be just "Big Guy" to me and my family, Dave's "Kiwi Muffuns". Thank you for being my friend. I will miss you. Sending Aroha & Awhi to Jennifer & Meredith. Kia kaha girls, be strong, it's what Dave would have wanted. Xxxxxxx
David and I were childhood friends through Jr and Sr High. Just had been reunited with Dave two years ago. My wife and I were privledged to have lunch with him a few weeks ago. We have lost a TRUE friend.
I was Dave's auto underwriter when he worked for State Farm. I considered him a good friend and an honest agent in dealing with the policyholders and the regional office staff people.
I am saddened by his passing; his presence will be missed.
David and I were playmates for one sumer in the mid fifties. J had not seen him since Weaver school in 1860 He was a good man
Sorry to hear about David,he was a good friend.I was in school with him from the 4th grade through 12.
I'sorry for the loss. I knew David in high school. Larry Brock
The most high (Psalm 83:18) promises these things are only temporary. Romans 8:18. I send my deepest condolences
