I've known Dave my whole life. We attended Groveland, Deephaven, and Minnetonka together. As is often the case, we lost track of one another after graduation. However, shortly before one of our reunions, he called me and we had a wonderful visit together. I am so sorry to hear of his death. Our class president, Mark Scholle, just sent his obituary. Certainly, your family will be in my prayers.

I met Dave in a music class at Deephaven and were friends for years afterward. My sympathies go out to his family and friends. Dave was truly one of the good guys.

I was so sorry to hear of Dave's passing.  Our sympathy goes out to you all.  He was so much fun and was one to make my mom laugh all the time.  Miss those times.  He was so good to visit my folks and will always be grateful.  Thanks for taking such good care of him up to the end.  May God bless you with HIS peace and comfort now and every day.  
Love in Christ, Paula

Dear Cheryl,

I am so sorry to hear about Dave's passing.   My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.   I will always remember your dating years and you waving good-bye to Dave through the dorm window.   You and Dave were a special couple.

Cheryl, Mark, Nan and Family,

I have such fond memories of all of you, and spending time at your home.  Dave always made us laugh and took the time to teach me how to play chess.  He even made an effort to stop to take me and my sister Elise to dinner when he was driving thru Arizona after we first moved here.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I hope that these memories bring you comfort in this time of sadness.  Sending prayers and hugs to all of you.

God bless,
