  1. I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I worked with him when I started with Nestle back in 1981. He was a good mentor to me at that time and I’ll always remember his smile and sense of humor during the many years we worked together.

  2. Bob worked with Dave at Nestle’s for year’s and we bowled with him too. He was a great guy. Our deepest sympathies goes out to the family. He will be missed.
    With heart felt Sympathy.
