Jeannette and I are very sorry to hear of the passing of David. We lived across a driveway for many years. Many years of talk, fun, watching him work on his cars, and playing golf. David and Dolores were destined to be with each other. Her infectious smile and laugh and his helpfulness and friendliness. We had a lot of fun with them over the years. Dave and I were both big Golden Flash fans. Jeannette and I would either see him at the football games or he would come over to our house and drive with me to the games. Then it was pizza at our place after the game. What a great guy. Did not see you much in the last few years but thought of you often. Two great people, Two great smiles. David and Dolores. Our sympathies to Deanna and Damon. Rest In Peace David and have fun now that you are reunited with Dolores.

Jeannette and Bob Brewster, Fairlawn.
