Jeanne and I are stunned and heartbroken to learn of Dave’s passing. Our memories of time spent together here in Simsbury are bright and positive, just like Dave’s mind and personality. While our paths could not cross in the time since he and Betty left Simsbury, our fondness for them never wavered. We send our love and tenderest wishes to Betty and the entire family. Rest well, brother…man of honor.

Him riding that Harley and stopping at my family’s home on Wolcott Rd…he would always stop and say Hi to my Dad! May his beautiful smile live on in your heart! Bless you all!

Betty, we’re so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I have so many great memories of working with Dave at SPD, and of having you as neighbors in Tariffville. Dave knew his way around engines and would lend me a hand when my second hand cars would break down. It was always interesting to swap stories and perspectives as Cops from different generations.
