Certainly the nicest man I have ever met at RSC. Always loved to see him show up with his family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

Dave will now spend his days with another great man show was also a carpenter, the Lord Jesus Christ. AND May Jesus grant him Eternal Rest.
