Our Condolence to Elaine,Nathan, Samantha and family members . It saddens us to know that my friend Dave has past on. I will always cherish the times we had together at Coca Cola in Northampton, Ma. We had some good times and I always enjoyed his company. He was a great gentle giant of a man and was always striving to do his best. He was a great welder and mechanic. I looked up to him and respected his knowledge. However most of all he was a great friend. I loved this man and will deeply miss his physical presents . It's hard to believe he's not with us physically, however he is with us in soul and spirit. Love you Brother. We now have another Angel looking over us from the heavens above. So if you see a butterfly or a praying mantis or something out of the ordinary you know it's Dave dropping by to say Hello and all is ok!!
