    I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing, and hope that you will all be comforted at this time. Godspeed, Dave.

  • Nancy & Roger Nielson:

    David was a good Bishop, a thought provoking Sunday School teacher, and a kind, helpful professional when we needed comfort and counsel. He was a loving friend to Homer and Susie for many years. We are so grateful to have had him for a friend. Your father was a good man. Please take comfort from our Heavenly Father who is merciful and just.He knows and loves us all. We send our love as we sorrow with you at this sad time.

    Mike and I were so sad to hear of Dave’s death. We have so many good memories of him. He was so good to our kids when he served as Bishop. One of Sharon’s favorite memories is when he went to Scout Basic Training camp and took his guitar and sang all night long. He didn’t sing the same song twice. It was our own personal rock concert.

    Through all of his struggles, he was always kind to us and greeted us with a smile. Dave, finally you can be at peace. God be with you, dear friend!

  • Paul:

    When he was a county commissioner, I worked with him, and it was nice to see someone with an interesting personality and a quick wit, in public service. I trust he’s finding peace.

    Many years ago, myself and my 4 sons were sent to Dave for family counseling. He had the ability to reach each and every one of my sons on their level. He was a welcome change in the sadly all too norm of counseling we had experienced. We still laugh and delight at the memory of his “silent” rendition of Old McDonald Had A Farm, (gosh, what an inovative and unorthodox way to capture the attention of 4 boys), his realistic and yes, a bit blunt,outlook was refreshing. All of us have our “issues” or “deamons”, if you will, yet, we also have our brillant, insightful, clear moments, when we are able to be the catalist in another person’s life. We will forever be greatful that Dave was ours. Thank you Dave. May you enjoy a cherished spot in the most “fun” band the eternities have to offer!

  • Jane M.:

    Dave married my now x husband and me. I then got to know him again many years later in a different light. He was a kind gentle guy. I will miss his presence in my life. Condolences and love to his family. He really was the sweetest guy.

  • Alison Craig:

    I was saddened to hear just recently of Dave’s death. His loving assistance helped me through a number of personal trials that came my way when he was bishop. I will always be grateful for his help with so many different issues. I still quote him and will always feel honored to have known him. I sorrowed over his struggles in recent years and know that a loving Father will lead him to peace and rest. I pray that all of you in his family may be comforted and strengthened as you deal with his loss.
