Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear of Dave's passing. Had many good memories. Our deepest sympathy.

Mr Wentzel was my fifth grade teacher at Kenwood in 1994.
I still remember him teaching us about astronomy and the presidents.
One of my favorite teachers of all time.
He will be missed. We lost a great man.

Death can be one of lifes worst surprises. David's loss to us all cannot be measured. Cousin Robin ( Tredway )Fischer David's oldest cousin was as shocked as Kandis ( Fischer ) Cook and husband Dennis, Robin's daughteer and son in law. were upon getting Jan's email this morning informing us of David passing.
Always a gentleman with a humorous side of pun induced creativity that had to make him one of the best teachers any of his students ever had.
He as a person should be and...

My deepest sympathy, Jan, for your loss. May God give you and all of Dave's family peace and comfort. You are in my prayers.

My fifth grade teacher I will never forget you. He was the one who taught me google was a number not a search engine, when he wrote a 1 with a hundred zeros on the chalk board and asked us what it was. He made learning so fun! May he rest in peace, he will be missed.

love Steven

To David's family,
I knew David way back when we were kids
at Powderhorn Park Baptist Church, our parents were friends. I have not seen him in years. I know there is a joyful reunion in heaven with all those Powderhorn friends and other relatives that have gone before. My prayers and sympathy to the family, may God give you comfort and peace.

We were blessed to become friends with Dave and Jan when they would come down to Nashville and stay in our guest apartment. We will miss Dave. Praying God's peace.

When Dave joined our family, he lovingly took on three more daughters and two granddaughters. He welcomed a new grandson, my son, with open arms this year. He brought amazing new joy to my mom and they were beautiful to watch together. He was such an amazing example of a godly father, husband and grandpa. I am truly blessed to have called him dad for five years. He will be so incredibly missed by all who knew and loved him. We love you Dave!

So sorry to hear of the loss of your father, Heidi, Jon and Amy. We have very fond memories of your Dad. We did a neighborhood bible study together. I always knew we could stop in any time on our walks around the neighborhood to have a chat. You are too young to lose both of your parents. May God feel near and may he hold you in his embrace as you grieve your loss.
