Dave, I will always remember our summers we spent growing up together at Greenbelt lake. Everyday was an adventure. Fishing, swimming, playing in the creek. Your Dad cooking hamburgers on the grill, you and I competing to see who could eat the most. We ate so many you could thump our bellies like water melons. We played horseshoes and washers and spent countless hours playing cards (spades) when it was too hot outside. And when it wasn’t we would be wading in Carol Creek, Tree swings, BB Guns, mini bikes, kid directed firework displays, and roman candle fights., The Tornado, tarantulas, snakes, and toad frogs. You were there for all of it my brother…
Until we meet again…Love, Your Brother Steve
David, Thank you for giving my sister lots of adventures and three wonderful children. Will miss beating you at Hold ’em.
David was a cherished cousin and friend to me. He was at all times loving, gracious, humble and just a delight to be with. I have many precious memories of David growing up and becoming the wonderful man he was.
I love you, David. ❤️
You’re already missed so much! We love you dad! ❤️
