We will miss David with his quick smile and pleasant nature. Always quick with a joke or some gag. He was our opponent many times in darts and you know what? It never mattered who won. We had fun. RIP David.

RIP my friend. I am sure you are having one hell of a reunion right now with all of those we love greeting you at those gates. No more pranks or food fights. May your family find peace at the end of their sorrows and may all those that you made an impact on remember you by your laugh and jokes. I will always have the memories of our Saturdays playing jokes on one another. Until we meet again RIP my friend

David was always so nice. When my husband and I were driving to Tarpon Springs for our honeymoon, this truck came up next to us horn blowing, lights flashing. It was David laughing and wishing us well. RIP, David.

Dave was a great bowling buddy. We had lots of laughs on Friday nights. I’ll always remember the impact of high fives with his 300-game ring! I’ll honor you, Dave, on Sunday, January 11 as I bowl at the Senior Tournament in Merritt Island. Rest in peace.

To Linda and family. David was a most special human being. Every Friday night for as long as I can remember David was a staple at Harbour lanes. And again on Saturday with the kids. No matter the situation, he would say “oh well”. Never a bad day in his book. I will miss our cigars on Friday. We also will honor you at the Sr. Tournament in M.I. rip

You were one of the very first people I met here in Florida even before I moved here. You made me feel comfortable and welcomed. There was always a smile and never a harsh word. I was there when you bowled your 800 and will never forget the glow you had that day. You have been a special friend throughout and I will never forget you. Will see you again someday. RIP my friend.
