  1. I met Dave at New Bolton Center in 2008, where I am a histotechnician in the pathology lab. I left New Bolton Center in 2012 and just returned in 2020 to hear of Dave grave illness. I remember him as so friendly and easy to talk to. I will miss such a kind gentle soul and may god keep him and bless him.

  2. Dave was a kind and passionate man who took pride in all he did.
    He started working at Genesis in 2003 and left in 2013 and then came back in 2015 until 2016. Everyone at Genesis loved Dave and loved hearing him talk about his family and of course his love of horses. We kept in touch with him over the years and were saddened to hear of his passing. May our condolences bring you comfort and ours prayers help ease the pain of your loss, Linda Johnson, Evelyn Agron and the Genesis housekeeping team. God Bless you all.

  3. Dave worked at Westview Farm during the past 25 years. He loved the horses and gave his best attention to them. He was kind and thoughtful and become a friend. We shall miss him and extend our deepest sympathy to his children and grandchildren.

  4. I meet Dave at Genius where we worked in house keeping. At the end of our shift Dave would say it is time to feed my horse. Dave really has an interesting life. He loved horses as much as he loved people. May God keep him forever.
