  1. Dear Wendy and family, I have worked with Dave for several years. He was passionate about his work, and although he was often busy, he seemed to enjoy every aspect of his job and co-workers. One thing I miss is seeing Dave standing in his office while on the phone, looking over his cubicle wall and smiling, just taking everything in that was going on around him. I am sad that Dave has passed on so suddenly and unexpectedly. I do believe that he is in a beautiful, happy place and your separation is temporary. You are in my prayers. Blessings to you all, Casey (Administrative Assistant at Honeywell)

  2. Dave was a great guy to work with. Our deepest sympathy and our prayers are sent to you all. God bless

  3. To Dave’s Wife and Kids, I had the pleasure of working with your Husband / Dad. In a company this size, to stand out, like your father / husband did speaks volumes to his character. He was very well respected and will be missed for his wisdom and friendship. Our thoughts are with you. – Dave and Lisa Conlon

  4. My heart felt condolence. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family. I have been retired since 1998, however I had the good fortune to work with Dave as part of an advanced technology/concept. Some 12 years later, that concept is part of Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner. Dave was relentless in his efforts to make the then new concept a reality. He was always out in front doing whatever it took to make a go of the project. This was even true when he was called upon to share his efforts between the new concept and the depatrments needs to support designs/hardware for the Space Station. He did much to make both a success. He truly made AlliedSignal/Honeywell a better place for engineers to work. May God bless and support you all. Ed Beauchamp.
