Dave, Gil Herold ( Springbrook/Four Corners Elem), and I were running buddies in high school. I loved jungle riding and drinking in his "63 Falcon station wagon. We miss you Dave....

I have fond childhood memories of David. We played endless hours together, mainly in Sligo Creek Park and Forest Grove Elementary. David was always so kind and generous! He will be missed but not forgotten.

It tough to try and sum up of a lifetime of memories? I have known Dave and his family since elementary school. While we grew up we always seemed to do everything as a group, we worked together, went to the same church and of course we partied together. The Keyser House was the place that we would always go and hang out. There was Sunday football, church retreats, Woodside Deli, church softball and bowling, sled riding, Halloween and the list goes on. I’m sitting here trying to remember the origin of the nickname “Earthquake Twins” Maybe it had something to do with our size. There was also something about hallway bells and senior week that needs be mentioned for whatever reason. It’s the little things we remember, a night of poker, pickles and beer at Bruce’s house and all of his different cars, finding someone with a car to just go cruising, sitting on his front porch or standing in the street for hours talking about anything and everything.  Dave was a free spirit who would always strive for success and he always did it on his own terms.  Over the years we did our best to stay in touch but it became harder as we got older and went our separate ways.  When we did get to see each other we always seemed to talk about the past and how great it was. I will miss my friend and brother and the times we had but I will never forget the memories. Rest in peace my friend and have a safe journey.

I remembser David as a very nice boy at Forest Grove Elementary.  He and Ricky were always together.  Such fond memories of those days!  Square dancing to the Virginia Reel, collecting leaves on the playground and spatter painting them.  The projects we made with the red clay and  putting them into the kiln.  Mrs Copes and Mrs Bechtol  Mrs Knox reading Paul Bunyan and his Blue Ox.  The school bazaars, every classroom set up with something different.  Field Days.  Patty Townsend always won the blue ribbon for running.  Dancing around the Maypole dressed in our finest.  Saying the Lord's Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance with our hands on our hearts every morining before class.  Those were the good old days and David was part of it all.  Thank you!

Big Dave. The kindest, gentlest giant of them all. Without a doubt the man who always had positive things to say about everybody and every thing.  A friend, a drinking bud, and a mainstay of our circle from high school through post-high school. Even after not seeing him for years, he was life of the party at my bachellor party and wedding. He remembered every detail of our good times from high school. I'm devastated that I missed the funeral.  I will always remember him as the the gentle giant for all mankind. Dave - we will all miss your good heart - peace be with you...
