Not sure what to say?

Just heard about this from Mark DeGeorge my condolences to Dave's family. Worked with Dave at Hampshire and always appreciated his can do attitude. I remember we had a customer complaint that we thought was resolved but came up again but not sure it was our issue. Dave decided the only way to get to the bottom of it was to inspect the reactor and scheduled to have it shut down / inspected on a Saturday morning. We met at the plant early morning and while Dave stuck his head and upper body...

So sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

So sorry to hear this news about Dave. My condolences and prayers to all his family and friends

So many fond memories of our years together at Hampshire Chemical. The biggest lesson I learned from Dave was when he brought a bottle of Opus One on a ski trip. That lesson, life's too short to drink cheap wine. I hold that lesson to this day. RIP Dave

Offering my heartfelt condolences to all of Dave's family. I know I speak for so many, as all our years that we all got to work with Dave were years and times that we all cherish. Even though it is a very tough time for all of you, you will always have many smiles, laughs, stories to cherish about Dave. God Bless Dave, as he will remain in the hearts of everyone, each and every day.

I have so many fond memories of Dave. We worked together at Hampshire Chemical. Dave was, of course, a great engineer, but the most vivid memories I have are of Dave advocating for his people. He was a great mentor and helped many reach their full potential. And he was a fearless reminder of what was right and just to the top leaders of the company. My deepest condolences to Dave's family. We will miss him on earth, but I am certain that even heaven is now improved by his presence there.

Uncle David told the best stories. It was my favorite thing about visting as a child. He was a big kid himself.
