  • So very, very sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I’m like so many others whose life is brighter because our paths crossed.

    I’m so grateful for good memories–his smile while sharing stories of local history; his pride when he spoke about his family, the twinkle in his eye when he spoke about the love of his life, Lou, “the smartest thing I ever did was marry a librarian–and a cute one at that!” and his supportive wink as he lapped me at PT.

    Sending our love, hugs and prayers to Lou, Brad, Amanda and family –Linette & Randy

  • Mrs. Mavis, Amanda and Brad,

    I’m afraid I just learned of your husband and dad’s passing. I am heartbroken for all of you as it was evident to me the love he carried for all of you and his beloved granddaughters.

    Your husband/dad came into my life during one of the darkest periods of my life and showed me such compassion that I will never forget. He felt more like an extension of my family more than my landlord.

    I will cherish my memories of him, including one of the last physical ones where he met my weeks-old daughter for the first time almost 6 years ago as well as the Christmas card updates we would exchange over the years since I moved from Mt. Vernon.

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead. What a special man he was and how my life is better for having known him.

    Much love,
    Kathleen Knipp
