Dave was a great friend. Not only a talented musician, but also a very funny and intelligent guy. Have alot of great memories growing up in Rosemount with Dave and Joe as my two best friends. I bet you guys are probably starting up a new garage band in Heaven. God bless you!

It's not often I read The Free Press these days but today I did and saw David's obituary. Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask but did David live in St. James for a while? I'm wondering if this is the same David I knew. Met him in about 1985 or so when he first came home from the Marines; had a few dates.
My sincere condolences to the family. So sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was one of Dave's friend through high school and joined the Marine Corps a year behind him. We were good friends after and stood up in each other's weddings. Through the years we lost track off and on, but had started to reconnect a few months ago. We started to share texts, and were making plans to see each other soon. I did not realize what had happened till Christmas Eve, I don't think I have been able to cry for any one as much as I have with his loss! I cannot image how this has affected his family, but I do share in your pain. Dave has given me a much greater gift in life with his friendship, one that I probably never would have had or maybe even deserved, so it has indeed been an honer, and privilege to have served with you, and to have been called a friend. So long my friend, until our paths cross again!
