      I always enjoyed talking to Dave about a lot of topics, and the most fun topic was about the books we both liked to read. Being avid readers, we would spend a lot of time discussing books and authors. I am fortunate to have had Dave as a friend.

    It seems like yesterday that David found his beloved Anita. There chance meeting while she cared for his Mom started a shared life of joy and adventure. He fought the good fight until the end. Peace Anita and to all Dave’s extended family who’s lives were made complete with his presence❤️

    Dave and Anita were my first ski buddies in the area and quickly became my best. Dave patiently taught me to hot wax and tune my skis.
    He was always so much fun to ski with and I will always cherish his “AAA-OOO” call from the chairlift.

      Oh Anita what a beautiful tribute to your dear sweet husband. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting him, your beautiful words make me feel as tho I’ve known him all my life. He must have been a very dear and loving man, and I’m so grateful for all of the happy years you two shared together. That’s the best! Love you my dear friend. You know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I’m here if you need me. Love you my sweet friend.

    What a beautiful photo of Dave! He was a shining light on the slopes of Bristol Mountain where I met him and Anita several years ago. From the expert trails to the bunny slope Dave skied them all and enjoyed every turn. So much fun to be with on the trails and hanging out with in the lodge. I’m grateful for the time that I got to spend with him and grateful that he and Anita had each other! Rest in peace, my friend!

    I remember Dave and Anita picking me up and driving down to Swain for ski day and celebrate ski club’s president day. Gore Mt , Warren Miller shows and social events with the ski club. I also had my skis tuned up by Dave quite a few times. He was the club’s official ski tune up expert in the matter. I always enjoyed Dave’s company and had some good laughs when he was around. Dave you will be missed by all of us at the club.

    Dave was a real gentleman and all around nice guy. He was fun and considerate. We are glad we got to know and enjoy him. He made our skiing experiences more fun. He will be missed and thought of often. So sorry for your loss, Anita.
    Sincerely,
    Deb and Bob Webber
