Dave was a great person, friend and attorney, especially in the pursuit of justice and pro bono assistance for the "little guys" of this world. In 2005, he joined Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, George Mikan, John McLendon and Rev. John Smyth in receiving our inaugural A-E-O Meyer-Harte Award given to giving and caring persons of integrity and character who demonstrated courage in overcoming adversity while excelling and succeeding in life.It also was a good definition of Dave's life. Peace, dear friend.
