I too, was in our special HEARTBEATS Aerobics Class with Dave. Words cannot express what a loss this is to the world. He was a joke-teller extroardinaire, loved sharing the fruit from his many trees EVERY season with our class--but most of all----his flair for zany clothes--we will never forget you Dave.

Dave was a student in my Heartbeats class. He was so special and kind, he lit up the room with his humor and infectious smile. He made everyone feel important and he always brightened up my day. There are some people who leave a lasting impression and he certainly did this for me. He will always have a special place in my heart

Dave was a student in my Heartbeats class and he made me laugh everyday. He brought such joy to everyone with his sense of humor and his smile. He made everyone feel important and brightened our days. I feel so lucky to have know such a fine man. There are few individuals that really stand out and shine, and Dave was one of these elite few. I am the lucky one to have known him. Thinking of you with love!

"Dave Day"
Dave and I were part of the "Heartbeats" exercise class at Acalanes Adult Ed for many years. Dave always brought a laugh to our mornings with his great sense of humor. He loved to surprise us with the brightest sock choices he could find. One day we surprised him with a "Dave Day". We were all in our regular spots, dressed up like Dave in bermuda shorts, polo shirts, baseball caps, and wacky socks of course when he walked into class.
Rest in peace dear Dave with your beloved wife!
