I was very saddened today to learn of Dave's passing. He was not only a gentleman but someone I admired because of his high ethical standards. As a township planning official, his first priority was what was good for the township. As a developer however, I knew that Dave was not only fair, but would help find ways to make a "good" project work in Muskegon Township. As a result, I did four projects in the township and in each case it was a pleasure working with Dave. I feel privileged to be able to say Dave was a friend.
