Dave was a very good and close friend of mine who was always there to help myself and my kids for many years right up until he passed. I will always remember the last hug he gave me and his smile. I enjoyed watching Nascar and movies with him. One thing for sure is he could always put a smile on anyone's face. He will always be remembered. I will miss him a lot.


My thoughts and prayers for Dave's family. I was a classmate and Dave was one of the nicest guys I knew. R.I.P.. Trudy Perry NC.
