Dave was a true friend. Dave always had a smile and a great sense of humor always joking around. I enjoyed going to hockey games in Danbury seeing Dave and Jane and his family there reguarly, very close family. Dave was a very proud man extremly proud of his beautiful wife Jane. extremely proud of his sons their wifes grandsons, great grandson and family. Dave brought smiles to everyone he came in contact with. He was a special man liked and loved by everyone that new him. He invited me and my boys Fishing with him on the MYjoy and i went with him a few times, he sure was a great fisherman and always seemed to catch the biggest fish. The crew on the boat thought the world of Dave to, he always treated others with kindness, he was a very special man, i will truly miss him always remembering his humor, makes me smile just looking at his pictures, man he was a great guy. i always had and will have the greatsest respect for him. Dave went out of his way for others always, he use to even buy pizzas for the parking attendants at the Danbury hockey games. Always giving to others. Boy did he love his family! Only ever heard Dave say positive things about others. He can be so proud of the family he raised. Dave you were the best! He really loved his wife Jane so much, was always braging what a beautiful wife he had and the lucky man he was. I cant say enough good about him.
