Sorry to hear of your loss, I think I meant him a few times, you are all in my Prayers

Sharon, sorry for your loss. Please convey my condolences to Aunt Donna and your entire family. Take care of yourself. Sending you strength and love. Cousin Connie Kobal and my entire family.

The Chavers and Cantey families send their condolences to the Specht family...I still remember when we were lab partners, Dave would ask me every day what are you going to burn up today Greg? You will be missed by many Dave.

We are so very sorry to hear of Dave's going home. We loved getting to know him around the campfire at John and Shirley's. He was such a great guy. He was always kind and soft spoken. We will miss him so much! We love you and are here for you.
Love and Prayers, Ron and Marilyn Peacock

I had known Dave nearly all my life .We grew up across the street from each other . He taught me how to play checkers , chess and the card game war . We walked to grade school together many times . I enjoyed his company throughout school and adulthood .I was fortunate enough to see him several times a few years ago .My sympathy to his family , he will be missed by many people .

It's heartwarming to me to know Dave had a close relationship with Jesus. I knew him around age 16 where we worked together. He was an outstanding person who was kind, a faithful friend and a genuine man. Condolences to his family. I'm sure he will be missed, but you we meet again.

So sorry to here of your loss

Hi Sharon,

Darrell & I had hoped to come to the funeral...unfortunately it is not possible. Darrell has a class to learn about his chemo treatment at 1:00 pm, in Canton OH, today. He has to leave around 11:30 AM to get there. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We send love and condolences to the family. with love & many hugs, Trish Emerson

Donna and family, so sorry to hear about David. I remember all the boys running around our house when I was a kid. Laugh when you think of all the good times your family has had and that will truly get you thru this. God bless you all!

Donna & family, so sorry for your loss. I was looking for the obituary of a friend when I saw the obit for David. Prayers for all of David's family as you go through this time of grieving.
