Dave was a nice man and a friend. Among the first when I moved to Ogden in 1986. He will be missed.

It's hard to mention only one memory - there were many. I can't remember a time in my life when I didn't know Dave. As life happened, our paths went separate ways and I hadn't seen him for years - a life time or more. For the past few years I had thought to track him down. Most recently I had intended to do so over the holiday season. With all best intentions, neglect begets regret, of which I shall regret for the rest of my days. I had always remembered his birthday and thought this would be the time I would finally follow through - when I got back in town.One ordinary morning in Junior High, while walking to school, we had our typical conversation of splitting the "teenage atom" and all our waxing philosophical. In the midst of this particular conversation he told me of a segment (I think) in Readers Digest about "the most unforgettable person in your life". While reaffirming how odd I was, he told me I would be the most unforgettable person he could ever know. A dubious honor at the time, hopefully that wasn't completely accurate.I can say there were events in my life that I will never forget and in some cases shaped who I have become - of which involved Dave. A couple seared so deeply in my mind, time has little affect on their clarity. I will never forget Dave - my sometimes brother on the other street.BTW - I will concede. You were right about Jimmy Paige.My God bless the family of this man that will always be my friend.Unforgettable...............

I've known Dave since we were kids of approximately 12 years old. We went to school together, and worked with him at Kimberly Clark. We took a camping trip to Murdock Basin, set up camp, and fished two days straight. I was his Best Man at his wedding with Michelle, and he was also an usher at my wedding. It's hard to believe he is gone.
