Dave enjoyed spending time at his ranch in Valyermo and his cabin in Aspendell when he wasn’t off flying and discovering new places. He enjoyed listening to jazz, hiking, fishing, kayaking and ping pong. Dave loved animals and spoiled his furry family members, dogs and cats alike! He was a friend and mentor to many as well as a generous man with a big heart. He will be greatly missed.
