On July 31, 1982, Dave married the love of his life Glenda in Renton, Washington. Dave was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. Dave loved the life he built with Glenda. They shared a mutual love of Jesus, family and travel. Dave was a proud member of Labor Local 242 and enjoyed the friendships he made over the years on the job and in life. After retiring, he and Glenda enjoyed traveling across the United States, Europe and Canada, as well as cruises to Alaska and the St Lawrence river. Dave’s hobbies included spending time with Glenda, going to the casinos to play a little and eat, exercising at the gym and at home, playing tennis, riding his bicycle, working tirelessly in his yard tending to his beloved flowers, fountains and birds, reading his Bible, and watching every boxing fight that he could. We should also mention his love of ice cream.
Dave leaves an enormous hole in many hearts and will be missed by us all.
Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise”-Luke 23:43
