I am surprised to find that Dave has passed, we were best of friends in the 80s and 90s but had lost touch in recent years. I'd stop by his house to say hello and end up staying for hours discussing all kinds of things. He had so many friends but always made me feel special. I will truly miss Dave and want to express my condolences to Joan and Barb.

How very sad. Dave was still a young man. I grew up with Dave, and then lost touch with him, but I had seen him at the local Giant Eagle a few times in the last few years and always said I would call him. I saw his name in the JMH Alumni News. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Dave was always a wonderful human being with a tremendous amount of compassion for others. He will be missed. I'm sorry I never called him. May he rest in peace. God bless.

To the Badstuber Family, Dave was my manager at the Riverside Theater, one of the first jobs I ever had. I'll never forget his smile and friendly manner. I'm sorry for your loss.

To Daves Family, I'm very sorry to hear about Dave's passing albeit one year after his death. I worked with Dave at Loew's Theatres along with our friends Dan McEntee Sr. and Dan McEntee Jr., both whom have passed in the last few years. I always enjoyed Dave and thought highly of him. I hope the joy of your memories of him sustain you continually. God Bless, Andy Fischer

My dear little brother, I miss you so much. You were my protector, always looking out for me and helping me along this road of life. I know you never understood how much I loved you, and you can't imagine how much I miss you. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. At times, the sadness is unbearable. I am still finding out what a great guy you were, and how many lives you touched. I thank God I was with you when it was your time to go home; He knew I could not have born the pain if you had been alone. Each day brings more memories, and sometimes I even forget that you are gone, almost picking up the phone to call you to see if you are home. Lord, when will this pain be over, but don't let me forget; be safe until we meet again, save a place for me and mom. Love, Barb

Dear Joan and Barbie:
My heart goes to you both there are no words to say that would fill the void.
Dave and I were friends for years, and as time goes we fell out of touch, we would cross paths now and again and
share good times. All the years we worked together at the theatre's and
friends we made, believe me my sorrow
is deep, it is all our loss that he is gone, Rest Gentle My Friend and Peace and God be with You and Yours.
Your Friend George B. Dameron

I'm sorry for your loss.

I worked for Dave at the Berea Movie Theater for several years. He was a great guy. I will always remember the party he threw for me when I left for a year in Europe, and how he welcomed me back when I returned.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
