So sorry for the loss of Dave. I have not been in the area for many years, and I only heard in the last day when somebody reached out to me. He was a great friend. A smart, talented, and creative person. My deepest sympathy. Jim DeAngelo

Dave — I represented you , and you worked for me , researching , investigating, advising me.You always showed respect and loyalty. A couple of weeks ago you spoke to me just to check in and you still called me “boss.” We were friends a long time and I was your father’s friend since we were classmates at the Old Forge Gym Elementary School in the Class of 1954.You never stopped learning, educating and trying to overcome so many setbacks and challenges. For that you earned my respect and admiration. The whole office —Dave, Lindsay, Joyce , and Connie all looked on your energy and your passion and insight with an engaging smile and warm repartee , and you loved this. Dave — you will be missed and there will always be fond memories of you in our hearts. Our deepest condolences to your family .May God bless you and may God grant comfort and strength to them to deal with their great loss. We love you Dave.
