Our fathers and mothers were friends during the Time days in Detroit. I have always had fond memories of your family and remember your dad in his t-bird. He was allergic to cats and my old Tom cat always wanted to rub up against him. I remember as a little girl asking about how he'd lost his finger. You are so lucky to have had him so long. I haven't seen him since my dad's memorial in 68, but he was a dear to make the trip to Detroit. It meant so much to my mother.
Being president of Tiger Inn says it all - the most popular guy in the club. Groping for a single word to describe him, "charm" comes to mind, but it does not do the trick. He was much more than charming, simply an extraordinary nice human being with all that entails.
I am about to turn 90 so my memory is not as agile as it once was but I still remember Dave and his love for dogs and his telephone answering machine's "carpa diem"
I have known Janet since 1986. I knew her mother Lee and her father David. I spoke with David over the years while he lived in Az. If anyone reads this post I would like to contact Janet if she is still local. We have lost track of each other over the past few years. My name is Sally and I can be reached at 805-660-5200. I am sad to hear about David passing.
I met David when I first came to work at ESPN. He was such a wonderful person to work with. Whenever I had a question about work, he was always there to help me. Even though we never kept in touch after he left ESPN, I always remembered him as one of the nicest person I had a chance to work with. I am so sorry he is no longer with us. Asmita Devani
I'm so sorry to hear of your dad's passing. He and my dad were best friends their entire lives. We called him Uncle Dave. What a classy guy. We lost a special person. On the bright side, the pals are together again.
Condolences, Margi Low Jordan
Dave or Uncle Dave as we called him was a great friend to our dad and family. Loved his visits with us. He and our dad with their popped collars and golf stories were awesome. He will really be missed.
David was an elegant member of the advertising community where his word was always his bond. He was my guiding star at CBS and we have stayed in touch long after those salad days. He was the last of my true pals from that time and I'll miss him mightily.
Getting to know David at ESPN was one of the highlights of my professional life. He was that rare person who not only talked the talk but walked the walk as well. Our countless lunches and golf games were always imbued with the spirit of fun that David brought to everything he did. He will surely be missed.
A wonderful man and a wonderful friend. We left Sun City West about ten years ago but I will always remember Dave and "carpe diem"
