Mary, I am wholly sorry for this news. I send all my love and condolences to you and your family. Wow, Dave helped save me in a time of my life when I needed a friend and a father type figure. My Dad passed in that first year I started to work for you and Dave and he helped fill that gap. I have so many memories, not only Dj-ing, but just hanging out at whatever type of event. Being a car show, lunch, or just hanging out in the garage. He is a person whom I will never forget. Love and Peace Dave, till we DJ again! Dan

Dave was a inspiration to my life, I couldn't thank him more to get me to where I am right now. I had so much good times with Dave and when there where bad days Dave would talk to me as if he was my father! I just want to say one thing he stood up for you gave you advice and and it was the best advice! Dave in your honor, I am playing Rockin Robin and pouring a brandy sour for you! And ill make sure i will smile up on that stage! See you someday again and we will do shows in heaven someday! RIP Dave!

We are sorry to hear this news, Mary. We got to know Dave through Chuck Simon, and enjoyed visiting with Dave at the Waite Park Legion. He always had a good story to share! Our sympathies to you and your family.
