If you're reading this, it's because my time here on this earth is complete. I was born and raised here in Connecticut all my life, raised by Hop and Jean Wiltse along with my sister Karen and brother John. I was most fortunate to spend most of my working career for the Schaller family in their automobile dealerships and looking back I want to thank them for the employment and support for all the years. Friends cannot be numerous enough and although there are too many to mention, the Wrecking Crew from Newington are a special bunch. No matter what or when they could always be counted on for any gathering. I cannot miss the opportunity to also mention the Indian Guide parents who we shared many laughs and good times with. Fortunately, Bomber and I joined a ski trip to Switzerland and met the love of my life Debbie. We were fortunate enough to have three great kids- Anthony, Rebecca, and Adam. Along with their spouses and kids we grew our family in Southington and I was blessed indeed- for it's family that really counts. I wish all that are reading this to not dwell on the sadness of losing a loved one but relish your friends and family for any occasion and love life. Here's to all of you, thank you. -Dave Wiltse Dave is survived by his loving wife Debbie D'Angelo-Wiltse, his children Anthony Wiltse and his wife Brittany, Rebecca Jalowiecki and her husband Joseph, and Adam Wiltse.
