Our deepest condolences and MUCH Love to the family of this wonderful Man. Dave was the true definition of "A Family Man" He loved his Family fiercely and protected them the same. As a friend, when/if I was in need, he and Dee were always there by my side. The "Void" of Dave not being on this earth will be enormous to many. My heart breaks for this beautiful family, and at the same time, thankful that his pain is gone and he is at peace. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around Dee and the entire family to comfort them during this very difficult time. Fly high with the Angels my Dear friend, and please know I will do the best that I can to be there for all of your loved ones. Love you all so much!

It's not often that our paths crossed but we will always remember Dave with great affection. His winning smile and easy personality made him so accessible to wonderful conversation. It was always a joy to visit with him and DeAnn when they picked up their dogs from the kennel or when we ran into them at a yard sale or in the halls of Oscoda schools. We'll not see you for awhile friend bit will be looking forward to that great reunion in the sweet by and by.
