  23. Mike Reiner,
    I have known Dave for over 30 years, we met when I worked at Logan. His genuine love of life and positive attitude always made being around him a good experience. Worked with him through several tough issues over the years, and his positive attitude always made the effort manageable. Fishing with Dave was always a blast!
    I will miss his smile, his laugh, the way he could tell a story, and his sense of humor. My sympathies to the family for such a big loss!

  24. I remember our first trip to Europe together. You had never been and you were so excited. Dragging our luggage from from one rail station to another was new for you. You learned a lot about Sea Bass in Germany. You got to see where Hitler grew up and Mozart’s childhood home. When we arrived back in the USA the flight attendant pulled the wrong lever and instead of opening the door deployed the emergency slide. What a trip! I remember being your partner in the golf league. You were not very good, but your outfits were on point and you always had the best equipment. Fun times!
    I’m going to miss you my friend.
    Praying for your family!

  25. My heart goes out to the family. David has always been the person I want to be. Friend, colleague and team player. We will surely miss him and his laughter.

  26. So very sorry for you’re loss. Sorry I can’t pay my respects in person. David was always kind to me. He will be missed.
