  6. Shannon family, I was sorry to hear about Dave (Digger), I never heard where that name came from. I remember Dave from back in the day Chestnut Park. Always a wave and a hi, how’s it going when I would run into him. Hard to believe I won’t see him anymore, I will miss that. In deepest sympathy. Pete McMackin

  11. We are so sorry for your loss. Dave and Terry were such great friends in high school. No matter where we’d run into him, it was like no time had been lost. Or I’d run into him at work and he’d ask “How’s Fog doing”, make sure you tell him I said Hi”. I always did! Terry will sadly miss waving to Dave in his high school truck as he’d be coming back into town and Dave was heading home from work. Life gets so busy as families grow, but Terry and I will be sadly regretting not just turning on to Frey Road to stop and see Dave as we rode by.
    Our thoughts are with yous all through such sadness!
    Terry and Gloria Forster

  12. Excellent neighbor, always willing to lend a hand. Will be missed.

  13. I am so sorry to hear about Dave’s passing.
    Deepest condolences to the family.
