In loving memory. from his wife's family!
Wasn't really easy with the whole stepfather thing but I came to realize he was a very good man and a great husband to my mother. He was a great stapfather and grandfather anybody could ask for. Didn't see his daughter much but she was still my sister. He is dearly missed and loved. He will always be known as my stepfather!
Very sorry to hear of David's passing. He was a heck of a guy and we had a lot of good times when we were younger. My deepest sympathies go out to his family.
We are so sorry. Our hearts go out to you.
So sorry for your loss. I worked with Matt at Dohrn and had the pleasure of meeting Tricia when I was in the hospital and they came to visit me. Hang in there Tricia! Your brother will always be with you in your heart.
I was sad to hear the news of Dave's passing. Although we grew up relatively close, I didn't know Dave until we were Fraternity brothers at the U of I. My prayers are with you all.
This is sad news. I had lost touch with Dave in the years after college, but I always remember him as someone with a ready smile that would give you the shirt off his back. Prayers to his family.
I was heartbroken to hear of his passing and I am certain that I can speak for the entire YHS Class of 87 when I say that he will be missed. Dave “DA” was always one of the coolest guys in our class and I absolutely hate that he is gone. I have not seen Dave since 1989, but one of the lasting memories I have of him was his smile and sense of humor. A memory: During our sophomore basketball season, Dave tried to emulate Clyde the Glide Drexler with an earth shattering dunk. Ball in hand; he went up with glory and self determination only to get the ball stuck on the rim. Falling back, he landed on his back, forcing the wind from his tall body into the atmosphere with the force of a hurricane. We all cheered when he went up and laughed when he came down, but that was our brother, that was our classmate, and that was DA…..always there and always laughing.
I have fond memories of Dave as a pledge brother. I haven't seen him in long time but still will miss him. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing.
I'm so sorry to hear about Dave's passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I was always so honored that he named his daughter Kenna...my name was always so "weird" that I was happy someone else liked it! I knew Dave in college - he was in my older brother's pledge class at AGR. I spent a lot of fun time with him - so full of heart. I'm so very sorry. - Kenna (Beaupre) Rathai
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
