Easily the funniest man I've ever met.He was not my uncle,but he definitely was my uncle. A life-long family bud, his spirit and energy will live on through the jokes and laughs of family/friends.He never missed a chance to offer me life advice/cottage tips. We must seek strength from each other as we all share a part of this loss, and simply keep doing what Dave would insist us to do; laugh and have a great time!
Deepest condolences
