Dave was a one of a kind. He fought in a war that no side could win and like so many others never fully got the praise he deserved for his service. Dave cared about people and loved his family. I had the pleasure of having Dave work with me at the sport shop and our friendship continued long after he decided he decided to enjoy his freedom to hunt and enjoy his grandkids and occasional trips out west. I will always remember him for a man that "called em" the way he saw it. To all of those in his family my deepest sympathy and let him forever be in your heart.
