I worked at pearson & havent seen Dave since i retired 3 yrs ago. So it often goes w work friendships. Sigh. His cube was in the next aisle from mine. I got to know Dave & his cubemate Dave when i was assigned to help with their workload one summer. Not only did I enjoy working with Dave, I really was excited to make new friends with both Daves. We all shared the same interests in sci-fi & had many chats & discussions. After I had to return to my dept, I would often stop & talk to Dave for some enjoyable conversations. He was a bright spot in my day. And I always learned something.
Jen, Lucy, and Nora, I'm so sorry you lost Dave. Sunny and I wish we could be there this weekend to mourn with you and remember Dave. I'm so glad to have been able to see Dave a couple weeks ago - to remember our 17th Street days and our weddings. Dave was made of tougher stuff than me, tougher stuff than most of us, I think. He was a prince of a man, and I'm honored that he called me friend. My thoughts will be with your family. Love - JOE
Jen and family,
I knew Dave from his work at Pearson. I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. Dave was a great guy. We will miss his spirit.
I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
To Jen and family: thank you for sharing this beautiful testimony of your husband. Although I don’t know you at all, I went to church with Mike and Jacque for a short time in Tipton before she got ill. I knew how grounded she was in the Lord and so it moved me to tears how her faith led your husband to Christ. She and I were pregnant at the same time with two girls and we shared a lot of laughs and I am glad I clicked and read about your husband. Praise God for his testimony, praise God that because of His promise, someday you will all be together again. Most of all, my prayers go with you and your two girls as you go through the grieving process, figure out what life will be like going forward and know even a stranger in MN holds you in prayer. My condolences for you and your family
I am truly sorry Jen and family for yours and our loss.
I met David in my first year of teaching Drama at Muscatine High School. He was one of the first students to make me feel welcome and trusted me in directing plays. We had a lot in common especially Star Trek and Star Trek Next Generation.
One of my best memories of David was the production of Scapino. The actor who was playing with him could not make it on time for the performance; I took his place and David trusted me to act with him for three scenes most of which was improv -- David was great at improv. When he was acting, he really acted with energy. In the second act, the actor made it to the stage and David improv the character to the rest of the play. He trusted his fellow actors and they trusted him== the very soul of theater. He so good at improvisation, he could be on SNL.
I will miss David as well as of all his family and friends, he has imprinted all of us around him. Farewell! Husband, Father, Friend, Student, Actor, Co-worker, and Gentleman.
Jen, Lucy and Nora, I'm so sorry for you loss. Dave was a special one.I have always had the upmost respect for Dave. Love you Dave
So sorry about your loss... I went to school with Dave an even back then he made people laugh an always feel good about themselves... He will be missed... May he RIP
I knew Dave through work, and I enjoyed our group walks through the business park. Dave always had a funny story to share. He loved chatting about his family. And if everyone else was grouchy about a work-related issue, he had a way of twisting the conversation into something positive, always with an ornery grin. Even with his declining health, he managed to keep his sense of humor. The world has lost a kind, witty, talented soul. May we all strive to be a little more like Dave to help fill the void of his passing.
Dave was a pleasure to work with at RRD (Moore Business Forms). He always had a smile and was quick witted. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this trying time.
Dave you were such an amazing man, with a smile that lit up the room. I send your family love and prayers in this time of need and moving forward. Your memories will last forever with us. You were a great artist and a wonderful soul. You will be missed by many.
Prayers to Dave's family
It may have been years and years but Dave would pop onto my mind often. Bud always let me know how the family was doing. My life was better for knowing him. Jen, it's hard to find the right words for comfort. But, I am thinking of you and your girls.
The first time I met my wife's youngest 1st cousin he was 3yrs old playing with a truck under he & my wife's Grandma Anna's dinning room table on Sherman St. Loved him from then on. Only got to see him a few times a yr; but watched him grow up, marry Jen, and raise 2 beautiful daughters - just like his cousin & I. Bless you David, my dear, dear friend.
