So sorry to learn of his passing. David and I have been friends for over 50 years, being classmates in school, playing ball, working in law enforcement and shagging. My condolences go out to Cheryl and the family with this loss. May God comfort them in the days ahead.

Dave was a very special person and dear friend. He and Cheryl were a big part of our Steppin' Out Shag Club. He was always willing to volunteer and be a part of anything our club did and he and Cheryl worked as a team. He will be missed by us and all of the many friends he has meet in his career and social life. God has received an angel and a shagger. He will be "Shadow Shagging" with us on our shag nights and will never be forgotten. Dave was a good, gentle person who is specially close to my heart because as President of the shag club he always did "The Call to Order" and he was amazing! We know God took him home and we know that he was ready to go to his final home. Dave may have left this earth but his memory will live on in our hearts. We love you Dave and until we meet again know that we will take care of Cheryl for you.
