He built shops, bird houses, benches and gazebos, ponds in his yards, cabinets, and tiled floors. He loved sunrises and sunsets, starry nights and rain storms. Dave taught his kids how to work hard and play hard. He was proud of his children and enjoyed every minute he could with his grandchildren.
