My thoughts are with Peg, Dick, Richard, Michael, and Jeff. There are so many great memories: all 4 boys swimming competitively for me, watching movies on their old Beta system in the basement, sharing drinks with Peg & Dick, rocking in the garage, watching them all grow into the nice, talented men that they have become. There are no words to adequately express how sad I feel about the news of David's passing. My family sends its love and aloha.

To the Fegley Family,
I am so sorry to hear of David's passing. I talked to him only a few times, but those few times were all I needed to realize what a magnificent spirit David was and is.
A peaceful, friendly, beautiful, soul.
We are thinking of you all.
Cheers David.

Yesterday was truely a tribute to David and what he stood for. He was all the things everyone spoke about and I'm sure more. We will never forget the love that was felt that day. David has gone to be with his heavenly family. He has not left us, but moved inside of each of us where he will live forever. Ken and I can not begin to imagine the loss that you feel as parents, but we do know that David will always be part and with you always.
The Fegley family is part of our family's memories. The Jaycees' children activities, swim club, parties, and Brew Pub are among them. David was part of all. God did not just call him home, but he left us with the memories of an "old soul" who often stood quietly in the backround taking it all in.
Peggy and Dick, We pray that God will continue to give you the strength that you will need in the days to come. When you need David, close your eyes and he will be there. We celebrate David's life and we will often close our eyes and see him too.
Our love and prayers are with you.

To the Fegley's,

I worked for you at the resteraunt for a short while. I just want to say that Dave's death is truly a great loss. For the time I knew him, he was always so warm, gentle and soft spoken. I will NEVER forget his kind disposition!!! I am so sorry that you lost him. All of you are good people..... to good to have something so precious taken away so suddenly. Sometimes it just isn't fair.

Dave was one of the most true hearted people I have ever met. He never passed judgement, held grudges or left any situation angry. He was wise beyond his years and was a quiet genius. His talent was endless. He left a "mark" with everyone he met. My life has been truely blessed and changed forever by the years of great times and unconditional friendship I spent with him. Rest in peace my true friend. I will miss you & love you Always & Forever. Until we meet again...

Dave was one of the nicest people I ever met. In the three short years that I knew him he managed to touch the lives of most everyone he met. Life will not be the same without him.
February 22, 2006
I knew you by so many different names and personalities...."Big D", "Rockstar", the big guy upstairs at 101, or the guy sitting at 116 with a bowl of soup and a funny story about his friends and his experiences. Most importantly though dave....I knew you as a good friend. A lot of people found those small things you provided to help pass the day just a little better. You had a very unqiue way of just being you? Not a bad word came out of your mouth about anyone, and not a bad word came out of anyones mouth about you. That says the world about somone and you will be truely missed. In this time of shock and grief...I keep your family and and you're friends all in my mind and my prayers.
I'll never forget the moments we got to spend together and Im thankful for having been blessed with your friendship for the last 5 years..I'll miss you Dave-o!!!

Dave was a good man and loyal friend. Out of everyone I know I can't really remember him speaking bad of anyone. He even stuck up for me and other friend if anyone would ever say anything bad about me or anyone. He found the good side in anyone. Our friend we afectinally named...Big D "Rockstar" You will be missed.

My deepest sympathy goes out to all the Fegley family members, and Dave's friends.

Dave was a unique individual,
and, I want to let all know that it was a pleasure to know him.
...even when he was awake early on a Sunday morning.

Not only did I get a kick out of knowing him,
he left an impression on my mother.
She met him just once at Musikfest, and remembers the conversation that they had for the few short minutes.

Thanks to everyone for making him who he was.
And, Thanks to Dave for passing through my life.
