  3. Dear Family
    While growing up I worked at Di Bello’s auction barn in hannibal, where dave also worked. He was a hard working, reliable honest man who I learned life lessons from. I Last saw Dave at Ben’s funeral and did not recognize him till I heard his voice. We talked of the great times we had working there and our respect for Ben. I respect Dave in many of the same ways, his word was golden and his smile contagious. My thoughts are with him and you, his family now.

  4. So very sorry for your loss! Dave was a special guy and will truly be missed. Please let us know if there is anything you need or anyway we can help. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
