Not sure what to say?

I Will miss you old boy !! I Will catch you in SEABEE HEAVEN !! We sure had a lot of fun in the Bees. GOD BLESS "OC"

My deepest sympathy to Barb, Annette, and families. When I moved to Olcott in 1980, I met David at the Black Stallion. A pleasant, funny big man. As I golfed at places like Willowbrook, Cross Creek, and Pro-Am, I got to know him even better. He was a great golfer with great stories to go along. The obit was right on about him. I will miss him very much. RIP OD.

With great sadness.

OD was a great guy! Made me laugh every time I golfed with him or sat at the bar. Great bar tender and even better story teller. I’m still using the golf clubs he built for me. He will be sadly missed.

We will miss OD. He was a good friend. God bless you threw this difficult time.

Give everyone my condolences.
Enjoyed him much

To David's family, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I am a cousin through his uncle Jiggs or George. I have nice memories of hanging out at Grandma and Grandpa's while growing up and playing together as kids. Joe and David were always into something and adventurous. We lost track of each other when he went away and so did I. Nancy Jean kept in touch and would update me at times. He made a good life. I am sorry I didn't connect again.

Rest in peace Uncle Dave.

I worked with OD for about 19 years at the golf course. Notice I said I worked! Od sat, mostly at the door entrance to the club house to greet, take fees, watch tv(Springer was a morning favorite), tell stories(of which there were many), fill a glass for some thirsty patron, all while getting paid. There were not many dull days at the course when Dave was in the house. He's now in Heaven's Clubhouse doing what before hand was mentioned and most likely getting a laugh out of it's...
