    Dave would stop by to go riding and if I wasn’t home he left his empty Pepsi bottle as a calling card. Just Sunday I saw a black Harley dresser and almost ran up to give him a hug but saw it wasn’t him. I will keep his smile in my heart forever.

    I love Dave. I spent 15 years working by his side. He taught me much, not only about our work but about things in life. I feel I am a better man myself for having the opportunity to be mentored by him. I truly miss him and will remember him, as well as the times we’ve spent together forever.

    Dave was the best drummer I ever knew personally. I taught him how to use the bass drum pedal and he just took off. I’ll never forget him and he will be missed terribly.
