We loved Uncle David so very much.  So many happy memories,  too many to count.  We will cherish those forever.  I'm glad that I was able to spend some time with him a few weeks ago.  That was special. We are all so heartbroken.  I'm relieved that he is no longer suffering.  May he rest in peace now. We will miss him so much.  Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.  🙏💕

You never forgot a special day. Such a special person didn't deserve to suffer the pain that you did but you are finally at rest. Till we meet again ..........Jean and Lou

RIP my friend. Dave and I were very good friends in High School. We made many trips to Northbridge back in the day. Spent many driving with Dave in that huge Dodge he loved to drive. We'll miss that great smile and all the funny stories.

Sorry to hear about Dave he and I worked together for Monday Night League. We would swap stories about our Families and he always had a joke he would tell. I didn’t know how bad it was for him, I called and sent texts but no reply. Now I know why he didn’t reach out. He will be greatly missed. Kevin Morrison

We always used to call him big Dave. I have the amazing pleasure of not only hanging out with him, getting to know him and golfing with him and my brother in arms young Dave. He was a fellow lefty on the golf course and that created a little bit of a bond between us. May your family find strength and your loss. With love.

So sorry to read about Dave’s passing. We were friends all through high school and even double dated a few times. We had great memories from Duffie’s Diner and there was no one who could tell a better joke than Dave. He could tell them all night long and they were all funny. I cannot begin to imagine how sad Dave’s family is but I would like them to know that they will be in our prayers.

I am very sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I came to know him as he came to South Carolina with his son, Dave, to play golf with our group. He was a very good man and will be missed.

Bobby Holmes

My heart is broken for all of David's family and friends. He was an amazing friend to my father and always helped when asked without hesitation or expectation. He will be missed by so many people but I take comfort in knowing that he passed peacefully. There's going to be quite a golf game and karaoke session happening in heaven! Rest in peace.
Donna Alves-Stark

I'm so glad I got to know Dad through Dave and Jenn. He was always upbeat and made you feel like you were the most important person in the room when you talked to him. A true example of humility and gentleness, but also a man who had strength and walked with a sense of purpose and authority. We will all miss him.
