Not sure what to say?

I am so sorry to hear of Daves death. I remember both Dave and Gay from our time at Concordia. I pray for Jesus love and peace to accompany all Daves family and friends, as Dave is kept safe in the arms of our Savior.

My condolences to the Nass family. My friend Dorothy Dodi Goedert was either he or one of his brothers third grade teacher in Poplar, MT. She often mentioned what a delightful person Bud & Verna Nasses son was. She continued to teach-30 years in Las Vegas. RIP to a fine man, whose family was very respected in my hometown.

My deepest condolences. I had the privilege of working with Dave when I was in the early days of my career at Accenture. He was a wonderful mentor to me and brought true joy to his work. He will be missed.

My sincere condolences. From when I was a member of St. Paul and a member of the choir, I remember Dave as a warm, positive, and good-hearted influence on everything he did and everyone he met. May God bring comfort to the entire family.

God bless Dave and the entire family. Dave is a very special man, a phenominal partner and an eternal friend. I will miss you.

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
