  4. Dear Kristen and Christopher, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss, my thoughts are with you and your families. My heart broke when I heard the news…..he fought a valiant fight, and set an example for all Survivors. Dave was truly a very special and wonderful guy.

I hope you can find comfort in knowing Dave will always be smiling down on you, cherishing you and protecting you and your little one….

Please give my very best to Susan and Bert, you are all in my prayers. With love and best wishes always, Fiona Field

  5. I was saddened to learn of Dave’s passing. We graduated from Miraleste High School and played water polo together for three years. Dave was an excellent goalie and helped lead us to a CIF berth back in 1982. He was always fun to be around and knew how to put people in a good mood. He will be sorely missed. Please accept our condolences.

I cannot image how you are all felling at this time of great sorrow but to be proud of what a fabulous Son,Brother,Husband and Father he was. Love,Lori
