To all of David's Family. We live down the street from David. He has plowed our driveway for well over 25 years. He was always reliable and friendly often showing up in the middle of the night so we could get to work in the morning. We also new him as a friend. In fact, I just talked with him a few weeks ago. I was running by his house and he was pulling out of his long driveway with Lisa's little grandson in tow. He stopped to talk and opened the door to the back seat to introduce me. He obviously cherished this boy as he did his home and his land. I can't believe he is gone. He seemed so happy and healthy that day.
Hunter has done some great work for us as well. He learned to be efficient, hard-working and friendly, from his dad.
Dennis and I will miss Dave very much. Sending our deepest sympathies.

Dear Michael and family -
We cannot imagine the devastation you must feel right out of the gate, you have been inseparable - two peas in a pod and LOVED by everyone! We are so deeply sorry for your loss! ❤
David will always be remembered as a beautiful soul - kind, honest, huge hearted, fun, hard working, genuine and real - not a single bad bone in his body! Stephen loved hanging with you guys in the barn and always had funny stories to share afterwards! David was always there when called upon! A good, solid person to the core! He will be sorely missed! ❤
Sending you and yours our love!

Dear Mike, Hunter and family, I am sorry to hear about Dave´s passing. Dave was a positive person who was very passionate about his family and his work. We were fortunate to grow up in the same neighborhood together. Dave, Mike and I played on our first travel hockey team, the Squirt B´s, who went on to win our league, District Championship and made the final 4 in the state. I always remember his great sense of humor and his big smile. May the many memories shared with Dave help you through this most difficult time.

One of the few things I missed after moving to Idaho was stopping in Saturday mornings at the barn. Always good light hearted fun with Dave and Mike. My fondest memory is the drive back from the oil spill in Carlisle, Ma. Blinding snow storm and Dave pressed up against the wind shield of the bread truck so he could see the road through the snow and telling me to steer left or right to stay on the road. To many memories to list. Rest in peace good friend.
