I was very sad to hear of David's passing. I just found out when I went on the "Pinegrove" website to look for reservations. I met David many years ago when I brought my Girl Scout troop to the ranch. I first learned about the dude ranch from Deidre, who was one of my co-workers. David and his Mom were so nice to us and we had a fabulous weekend. My sincere condolences to David's wife and family. I'm sure he is missed terribly.

I'm sure the new owners will honor David and his family by continuing to provide the quality of services that me and my girls received.

Blessings,
Maureen Scott

In college at SUNY Albany, more than 30 years ago, OHalloran was known to myself and others as Big Dave. He was popular, athletic, outgoing, kind, and a natural leader with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed many good times with him. When someone had trouble, Dave was supportive, and he offered good advice. Very sad to see Big Dave pass. My condolences to the family.

Our deepest sympathy to all David's family and friends. We have worked with David many years printing the t-shirts for the gift shop. David was always ready to stop what he was doing when we dropped in and talk about boats, fishing and his family. He will be missed

My deepest sympathy to Donna and his beautiful daughters, his family and his many friends. I only had the pleasure of meeting Dave and Donna when I began working at Next Boutique a few years ago. It was always a bright spot in the day to see them and there was always a great conversation whether it was about the girls, a trip or them stopping in before going to dinner. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Barbara Ryan

Condolences to The entire family, Dave was always cordial to me even though I bought the boat he wanted back in 2006 (Fish Merchant) a 48 Ocean sport fish. I always enjoyed talking to him about boating and fishing. I wish I had run into him and his lovely family more often, but that wasn't in the cards we seemed to be in 2 different places at the same time. Over the last 10 years or so I knew Dave, I was alway impressed with the time he spent with his family. I am deeply sadden that he was taken way too soon, but was glad I was able to be a part of his life. God bless Donna, Brittany, Dominique and the entire family. Dave, One day we will meet again in the salty skies.. fish on.

I have known David for almost 20 years, being a multi-time per year guest of Pinegrove Ranch. I met him on my very first visit, and was immediately struck by his kindness. Every visit after, I was always greeted with a smile, a hug, and "welcome back, it's good to see you". The ranch has become my home away from home, as he continued to maintain an amazing staff, who always made/make me feel like part of their family. My heart goes out to his wife and daughters, and to all of those who were close to him, with a wish for strength and peace in the many difficult days ahead.

Saddened and shocked to learn of Dave's passing. What a great man he was. In 2008 when I was working for George Phillips who was running for congress he donated rooms at his resort for us to stay at when we were campaigning in the Hudson valley. I'll never forget the first time I stayed at his resort is back when the gas prices were extremely high. The next morning I discovered that someone had drilled out my gas tank on my jeep. Dave offered and paid for the repairs to my jeep.
