All of us who live in Cedar Ridge knew Dave from seeing him on his daily walks, always a smile and a wave. I always wanted to meet him, wish I had taken the time. R.I.P., Dave, we miss you.

Over the years, as I drove home, I would see him working out with weights in his garage or walking Cedar Avenue. He was always very fit and waved "Hello!". While I did not know him, I have missed seeing him.

Dave was a great guy! He was a wonderful neighbor, and an asset to our neighborhood community; friendly, considerate, respectful. He will be missed. May he rest in peace.

This just breaks my heart. I knew him for years from working at a local dentist office . He was always sending me jokes via email . I enjoyed waving to him walking and he talked so lovingly of his parents before their deaths. He was such a gentle, godly man who never met a stranger . God bless .
