Sorry to hear of Dave's loss. Worked with Dave over the years. He was a very easy person to work with and always patient and friendly. I know he enjoyed fishing and going to RI and camp was a special spot. The last time I spoke to him was a few years ago when I was passing thru your back yard snowmobiling. The picture of him smiling truly is truly a great tribute of how I knew him and will remember him. Again sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dave has always been the most friendly guy I have ever known. I will miss him a lot but will never forget the good times we had up to camp and in Rhode Island camping. I know my kids Jeff and Tracy will miss him the most. Dave has always been in their life, especially at the holidays. They always told me how much they enjoyed being with the Dygerts. I was so glad that I could be up there to see him. RIP Dave, until we meet again. “ The outlaw”
