Dave passed away on April 26 at Renown Hospital with his wife Nancy and foster daughter Patti by his side.
Dave was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He worked as an independent contractor in Mammoth Lakes and Colorado before moving to Nevada. Dave was employed at Circus Circus for 20 plus years.
Dave was one of the first members of Hot August Nights. He was a familiar sight on the streets of downtown Reno during all hours of the event. As a car lover and volunteer member he did it all. Dave could be found judging cars for awards, parking them at show and shines, directing the Sunday morning parade or helping someone with a mechanical problem.
As an Air Force veteran, Dave will be interred at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, Nevada. At his request the service will be private.
