Keeper of lists, friend of stray animals, aviation enthusiast, and line dancer, “Dave” was a dedicated teacher, skilled mechanic, and all-around DIY handyman who was still climbing two-storey ladders to patch the roof well into his later years. It often seemed the only thing he could not fix was a broken heart. Now more than ever we wish he were still here to try.
