We’re sorry to hear this sad news. He was one of the early carvers that joined LJ’s.

I’ve received some nice PMs from him.

We’ll miss his presence in this great group of wood lovers.

Our sincerest condolences to your family.

Dick, & Barb Cain

I am so sorry as well and offer my condolences and prayers. Dave was a special person who always had a positive outlook despite the setbacks that life dealt. I will miss “talking” with him, as I had the distinct pleasure to do on several occasions.

You and the rest of Dave’s family will be in my prayers.
