  1. I’m very sorry to read of David’s passing . I’m a cousin, I was a member of the fire and police commission when he was fire chief.
    He was a relative, colleague, and friend.and I know he will be missed by those who were close to him. My condolences go out to family and Carol. Cousin Sonny

  2. Dave was a brother-in-law, a school mate, a colleague, a partner, and most of all a friend. He will be missed. We are sorry Carol, Norman, and Dick.
