Dave and I go back some 53 years when we met at Payne High School. It seems strange to type that number but it seems much stranger to be writing this at all. Dave was a curious person, quick witted and he wanted to investigate many facets of life and have fun in the process. He had a laugh that could light bulbs.
Dave found common ground with many people he met. With me it was hanging out, swimming, camping, water skiing, cruising on bikes, later in cars and introducing me to building Heathkits. In 1968 Dave learned Morse code. He built a Morse Code Keyer and HeathKit Code Oscillator for his Ham radio set up. He recorded his music and school notes on a small 3 inch reel tape recorder. Just a cool dude. He will be missed in this world.

Sending sympathy to Dave's family. Dave was a year younger then me but we both played Trumpet in the marching and concert band at Payne High School. After graduation, I went to Butler and Dave came there for his freshman year. Dave was always kind with a gentle spirit and loved music. He will be missed.

Dave and I were in high school band together. He was a wonderful trumpet player and always held first chair. My condolences to his family.

Met Dave when he was the student director at Wayne Trace High School, under Donna Stedman. I was in 8th grade when I started taking trumpet lessons from him. Good memories marching in the centinnieal band at
Payne...it rained we got wet, but kept marching and playing. Performed at a concert with him -double trumpet trio "Bugler's Holiday."what a priviledge to perform with him. Great memories. He's in God's hands now and we will see him again when we meet Our Lord and Savior.
God's Blessings to friends and families .
