    Dave was a great guy. When I had a dispute with the ford motor company back in the 80’s he made a few phone calls and resolved my problem immediately.
    Dave always had a funny wit. He was the master of “one liners” many that I still use today. One of my favorites was when he would refer to a loser in a fight that the person would be spitting out “chicklets”.
    When you talked to Dave he would always stop what he was doing and look straight at you. You could see the wheels spinning in his head.
    I am glad to have known Dave. He would add color to any conversation and he will be missed.
