  • Sorry to hear of Dave’s Passing, when face book came out he was on my list of old friends to seek out. I never found him but my memories go back to grade school . I remember sitting around watching football with our football cards out and simulating what was going on on the TV . I also remember us listen to AC-DC on 8 track lol – whenever I hear those songs he is the first memory I have . My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to the entire family.
