Dave was a very hard worker. He loved finishing concrete and was a perfectionist with his detail to work. Dave lived life to the fullest with his friends and family. He would help anyone he could. Dave loved to make people laugh and loved playing jokes on people, especialy the people he worked with. Dave was a Chiefs fan – win or lose – he loved the Chiefs. Most all Dave loved God and knew that is where his strength came from and now he can rest in God’s arms. Dave will be dearly missed by his family and all that knew him. We will miss that grin he always had on his face.
