Working with Dave

I only knew Dave the 4 years he worked at Eastern Time.  He was an awesome coworker, and person. He was always funny, and did an amazing job. I will miss him, and I wish his family the very best.

Rest in Peace

I knew Dave working with him at Eastern Time. Such a great person to talk to and have fun over the phone with. Went out of his way to make sure we had parts and answers we needed to make us better. I'm going to miss you sending me picture texts about the food next door every Friday making me jealous. May you rest in peace my friend.

I enjoyed working with Dave and his wife Lois at UPC almost 30 years ago. What a sweet man; I'm thinking of Lois & the rest of his family & so sad for their loss. He was one of the really good ones 😔
