We had the pleasure of meeting Dave when he coached our daughter in select softball. Dave was kind, very patient and a great coach. Years later when MacKenzie got married we were thrilled when both Coach Dave and Coach Rob joined us in the celebration. Our deepest sympathy to the Koll family.

My heart felt condolence to Donna, Mark, Melanie and all the Koll family. Dave was our financial advisor and a really great guy. During one of our annual reviews we discovered that we both attended Northwest Hills Church. I will miss his infectious laugh and kind heart.

Dave and I had the same boss until 1985 and I can vouch that he was always a gentleman, knew his products well, and dripped with honesty and class! The world has lost a true gentleman!

It is with sincere sympathy I send this message having known Dave as a fellow board member on the NAIFA State IFAPAC Board. Dave was a very passionate member and leader of the Board and one that I looked up to during my time serving with him. I cannot imagine his passion was any less for in taking care of family or his clients and friends. He was a wonderful example to me. RIP Dave.
