Rich, so sorry for your loss. As you know I can certainly relate to the pain and sorrow for the loss of someone so near and dear. My sincerest condolences.
Condolences on the death of your husband, father and grandfather. I first "met" Dave when I attended Alma College; he had an afternoon program called "Drifting and Dreaming" which I listened to after lunch. Later we met through Alma High School where I found him to be a caring booster to everything Alma, but he was especially kind to high school athletics. RIP
Goodbye sweet brother-in-law.....as great as any blood brother could ever
be....love you always, Jo
Mary Lou & family, we were so sorry to hear of Dave's passing. Mom just called from Florida to tell me. He was one of my VERY favorite people in this world. I have great memories of him, especially of the jokes he & dad use to play on their buddies. Like the time dad helped Dave pull a stump out of your yard & they "dumped the stump" on Bud's driveway or front porch ( can't remember which). What a couple of nuts! Dave was so good for my soul when dad passed, I will always be thankful to him for that. My birthdays were always "announced" on the radio ( to my mortification) as he couldn't forget mine, we shared the same birthday. I pray that he & dad are together again, laughing about old times. Our deepest sympathy.
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I wish I could say something that would take away the pain of losing but I can never think of the right words. You children make sure you take good care of your mom, she needs you more now then ever.
Dear Karen and family,
I am so sorry to hear about your dad! I have looked online to try to find your address, but no luck. Please know that I am thinking of you. Your dad was a 'celebrity' to me. I always thought it was so cool that he was a radio personality! Your mom and dad were always so fun and so nice to us as kids. With sympathy and prayers
Mary Lou, Rich, Cathy, Karen, Jim and families: I am so sorry for your loss. I feel blessed to have known David for these past 3 years and so much enjoyed visiting and taking with him. I love how he let me take his chair for a spin and I love listening to his stories of his past. He had a great sense of humor and was so kind and sharp. I will surely miss him. Love to all.
So sorry to hear of Dave's passing. He will be missed. I have many fond memories of Dave and Mary Lou - really good people.
I am so sorry to hear of David's loss. He was a Great Guy. When he was able to drive he would visit us at the drive thru at firstBank and we would all look forward to his visit.
He will be missed by all of us.
My condolences go out to the Sommerville family. My memories of Dave Sommerville are of his voice on WFYC am radio. He was the radio voice of Gratiot County. I remember his B&W Co-op Farm Report on the radio and I believe he also announced the Alma varsityFootball home games. I also remember cleaning his office at WFYC 3 times a week because my dad used to commercially clean the radio station. I always liked going into the radio station and seeing the radio announcer on live and the sound of the Associated Press machine typing vigorously the most current news from around the world. I also remember Dave's voice on many local radio commercials. He sure was a believer and doer in giving to the community. You all must be proud of such a person who gave so much. Not to mention serving in World War II of which I have been an avid admirer of those who served in such a critical time of our nation's and world history. Sincerely, Carlos Fuentes
Jim and Rich, I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
