Not sure what to say?

Dave was smart, Joyful and fun to be around. He was a natural leader and loved by all who knew him. My condolences to you and may warm thoughts of him comfort you.

Our "family" of the Widefield class of 1966 is just learning of the passing of our beloved classmate Dave Theiss. Although I can only speak for myself, I'm sure I represent the entire class of 1966 and anyone who had the privilege of knowing him and his family. Coach Theiss was an inspiration to his athletes. Mrs. Theiss was an inspiration to her journalism students. I was one of her students for 4 years and often thought I should have told Dave how much she influenced my life. Dave...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. I remember Dave in school, he always seem to have a good time , friendly and upbeat.

Our thoughts and prayers to his family. He was quite a character and my best friend. Too many great memories to share. I'll remember his gritty sense of humor and his determination to excel at whatever the task. Will pray the Lord will give the family and friends comfort in the days ahead. Tom and Drinda.

Prayers and sympathy to the family.

My prayers are with the family.
