    I’m am so sad for the loss of this very sweet man. May he rest in peace. If there is anything your family may need count on the family of the Newfane football extended family. I know Andrew can count on his BROTHER’S from his lighting team to get him through.

    Kelly, I remember the first time I met Dave. It was at Amy & Joe’s wedding reception. Everyone was dancing to the song, “It’s Raining Men” and all the girls were sing the chorus – (It’s raining men) but they weren’t singing “men”. I asked someone what they were saying and they laughed and said. . .it’s raining DAVE!
    That’s how I will always remember him- the life of any gathering and loved by all- a wonderful man, a wonderful father and husband.

    Kelly and Family, We are so sorry for you loss. Dave will be remembered as a loving father to his children and a loving partner to you. We witnessed many occasions at church of the loving man he was. He had a face that always seemed to be smiling. It will be glorious to see him again when our Heavenly Father calls us home.
