I met Dave on February 24th, 2004. He rented a small cottage from me near Lake Austin, in Austin, Tx. Dave rented that cottage until he passed. Over the years Dave's porch became the afternoon meeting place. Dave and some neighborhood friends would gather, drink a little beer, play domino's and enjoy life. Dave was sort of the "mayor" of the compound as it was called (8 cottages together). He would sit on his porch with Mutsy and Rollie, two fine dogs that adopted Dave. They would keep an eye on things for me and Dave would let me know of anything important. Dave became one of my most trusted friends. He watched over my property. He cared for the yards, fixed plumbing, electrical and whatever need doing. He had keys to every piece of property I owned including my home. I could trust Dave with anything. Dave really enjoyed picking on me. He would complain about something on the property just to get a rise out of me. It became quite a game with us. I was very blessed to have Dave as a friend. He was intentionally crotchety, but he had a heart of gold. He was honest, trustworthy, humorous, well travelled and well spoken(usually). We should all hope to have friends like Dave. I miss you my friend. WHOOP WHOOP!

Out of six kids, David was clearly the one with the most "Smith genes." Loved his motorcycles, and freedom. Nothing was ever going to tie him down or slow him down. He traveled extensively even after the rest of the family settled down. I would love to have a history of his times in Mexico. He would be gone for months and then pop back into town and stay for a week or two (or until it got cold- he hated the cold). But if you needed something done with a gas powered motorized vehicle, he was your guy. Caring, and generous to a fault. Life was not smooth sailing (he loved to sail) for him but he always met it with a smile on his face and a devil-may-care attitude. Others have quoted some of his "Dave-isms" like "sew a button on a balloon" but he was very caring of family and livened up every get-together. Dave, we won't know what to miss without the annual or semi-annual visit by you and the dogs. Marsha and I always enjoyed them, but then you got itchy feet and had to get going, even though you had no where specific to be. Everyone needs to thank Sandy and Terry for watching over Dave in his last few months and his battle with cancer. Sandy gets the Mother Teresa nomination. Dave, we will miss you. Peace, brother.

Dave was most certainly one of a kind. A gentle soul with a dark, mysterious outer shell. Once you got through to that shell, what you found was one of the most caring, honest and compassionate people you'll ever meet. One thing I learned from him was to not take life too seriously, as if you do...it will eat you up. He will forever leave an impression on me to enjoy life and the little things. Sometimes life throws challenges at you that you don't think you are ready for. I think that was what Dave dealt with in his fight with cancer. He wasn't ready for it, but he was ready for what was going to come. He had come to peace with it because he knew what was coming. Don't let life pass you by. It will pass you by faster than his race car, faster than you can imagine. Sail on Uncle Dave, enjoy the time you now have with your mom and dad!!!! You will be missed, loved and remembered for who you were.
