    So many great times and laughs at the Johnson Bentley pool or along the backroads of the Okanagan on our motorcycles. Full of knowledge and stories about almost everything you can imagine. Thanks for all the great memories Mr. Dave and will surely miss all the coffee or lunch stops we shared together. . . Dana Graves

    Dave was a great friend who lived life to the maximum. His positive attitude and great sense of humour will always be remembered. He was a friend who would do anything for you. Our riding years together, camping trips & winter walks are memories we will always cherish. He will remain in our thoughts forever. We send our condolences to Tracy, Karina & his entire family. He will be missed by all who knew him. Marion and John Mardall

    Dave was a true friend and gentleman. An avid motorcycle enthusiast who will be missed by all those that rode along with him during his many riding adventures. I was fortunate to ride many miles following Dave.

    I was saddened to hear of Dave's passing. Loma Lumber was in his district when he was with True Value and he was one of the best reps who called on us ... we developed a solid friendship over the years. He and his motorcycle "gang" loved riding in our area. Bumped into Dave on occasion in Orchard Park and we caught up on "the good old days". Please accept our sincere condolences.
