He always did more than required. He was active in our union, ran the flower fund and ran the retiree breakfast. My life was better because of him. I will miss his beaming smile at the breakfasts.

I knew David and his lovely wife from Sheilas Restaurant. I'll always remember how nice of a man he was to wait on. Very respectful. And I always admired how much him and Jane loved one another, just a beautiful couple. My deepest condolences to the family. He will be missed.

So sorry for your loss. Dave worked with my Dad at Bell Telephone and I would always talk to him when I would see him out side at the sub station. He had the most beautiful blue eyes and kindest smile.

Mr Saras was a wonderful and kind person who I knew for many years as a neighbor in Baden. My late parents were friends with Dave and Jane who spoke so well my family while my brother grew up with their children.
I got to know the couple when I moved back to Baden and into my parents home when I would be walking with my dog around the block. So friendly and pleasant when we would talk about activities in the neighborhood.
I am a better person for having known Mr Saras and his family and pass along my deepest sympathies on his passing to his family.
