  24. I am very sorry for your loss and look forward to David’s ceremony. David was my best friend and roommate throughout college in the dorms and our fraternity at Michigan State. He was the first person I met when I moved into the dorms and we quickly became great friends. He had a big heart and always it was my pleasure to chat with David about all topics for many years. I was so happy we reconnected for several years in California when I came West after law school and joined David there before he returned to the place he loved Colorado. David knew so much about the world and history. I like many others always enjoyed his presence. David was surrounded by great people – Jim and Thayis, Steven, Kristin and Anna. He will be missed dearly, but he lived an amazing life with incredible experiences along the way.

  25. My heart is with you all !💕

  26. Heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and all who knew Dave…it was a tough day when all of us colleagues and friends heard about the sad news. Dave was a pleasure to talk, work, and spend time with, and could always be trusted for kind, respectful, honest, and highly appreciated input on any topic. He will be missed.
    May God bring comfort and healing to all who are are struggling with this loss.

  27. Dave was my best man and I was his. We had so many great times together and great memories. I will miss him a ton. My sincerest condolences go out to Kristin, Thayis, Jim, and Steve. Dave was such an amazing man and it’s because of the spectacular family he had to mold him into who he was.

  28. Dear Thayis and Jim, I think of you and your family often and decided to google you never imagining I would find David’s obituary. Please accept my condolences and prayers for you and your family. I would love to hear from you.
