Dave, a 1972 graduate of Peebles High School in Peebles, Ohio, was a self-taught engineer with a robust work ethic. His passion for robotics and his business-oriented mindset led him to a successful career as a Plant Manager for Industrial washing machines. Known as a very organized individual, his love for order was evident both at work and at home. His dedication, professionalism, and ability to innovate made him a respected figure in his field.

A strong-willed individual, Dave never shied away from challenges. Instead, he embraced them, using his analytical skills to find solutions and make the most of every situation. His love for NASCAR was well-known among his friends and family, often leading to lively discussions and debates. A man of faith, Dave was a Catholic, finding strength and solace in his beliefs.

Dave resided in Sarasota, Florida until 2008 when he moved to Dothan. His love for his community was evident in his daily interactions and his commitment to making a positive impact. His strong will, combined with his warm heart and infectious smile, made him a beloved figure in his community.
