Brilliant in code, Dave was also gifted with both patience and humility that allowed him to excel at teaching others. Following his passions and interests took him around the world and a life filled with storied travel and humbling service. Yet for all his extensive travel, nothing was more satisfying than being home with his family, where the richest experiences were the smiles & laughter of his children and grandson and savoring those moments.
He will be forever missed, yet his smile will continue to warm the hearts of those who loved him.
