Our deepest sympathies and prayers to Linda and the entire family. Dave was a great neighbor to us when we lived across the street. Always loved hearing the stories he would tell about what our dogs did while we were at work, especially when it involved UPS trucks. Will never forget his kindness of retrieving Bryce's clothes and stuff out of his vehicle after he was killed. It wasn't easy for Dave but he did it anyway to help us. He will be missed by many friends.
