My sympathies to the family. I worked with Dave at IH in the 60's. I vividly remember his very fast black Studebaker Avanti (as I was a car guy too).

Dave was a friend and client to my salon for several years and I always looked forward to our visit. He shared his stories so proudly of his family and grandchildren! (And blackjack!) His sweet smile and kind heart will be missed!
