Dave and I grew up together in Lansingburgh we drifted apart when we went in the service . As kids we did many things and I have fond memories. His brother Bill used to tease us a lot. We use to slay ride down 119th st hill.His wife Joan married a fine man. Love and prayers.Chris Lambertsen

Dave was always uplifting, his bright & witty sense of humor was inspiring. Working through long shutdowns we always got the job done on time.when I started at manning in1984 Dave took me under his wing.As union steward he represented us honorary. When ask to come in after hrs. Dave would say ask everyone else if no one was available I'll be in. One of his many clich, when people would look at Him & I is " I'll bet you had us full of Nickles. I SALUTE YOU. FREDERICK E. GOKEY III
