The picture says it all…cheers to life! This was Dave’s outlook no matter what life presented. He was a life-long musician, beginning as a percussionist and vocalist and eventually teaching himself to play both acoustic and bass guitars. Dave was devoted to his family, especially his wife of 40 years and his two daughters. He also liked his quiet time shared with his 4-legged buddy Jake. Dave enjoyed sports as a spectator. Red Wings hockey and Notre Dame football were two of his favorites. Dave would talk to anyone- no one was a stranger.
