I worked with Dave in the 1980´s at American Family Insurance, he in sales management, me in claims. I found him to be a hardworking man of integrity, someone I respected a lot. Our roles at AmFam would occasionally put us at odds with each other but I always trusted he was doing what he thought best. He was an honorable man, the world needs more Dave Hurlbut´s not less. My sincere sympathy for you loss.
