My condolences to the Rehbeins family loss.
I am really going to miss harassing Dave because it was so much fun. I also loved honking at him or yelling comments as I passed his house because he never knew what to say. He will truly be missed.
Lori and family
So sorry to hear about Dave. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
You campground friends, Loren and Lavonne Ott.
My deepest condolences to you and your children and extended family on Dave''s sudden passing! I couldn't believe it when I heard! You are in my prayers. Let the memories help you try to get through this difficult time. God bless! Lori Miller
Lori, Anna and Family:
My family sends our deepest sympathies. I could not believe my ears as I first learned of the news from Maddie. I know she was very close to your family and had fond memories with David. I didn't personally know David very close, but I will never forget one of the very first times he spoke words to me after seeing my first new Ford pickup. He said, "It's about time you got a man's truck!" From that moment, I knew he was one of the good guys. If there is anything that your family needs, PLEASE do not hesitate to reach out. I wish everyone well during this very difficult time.
God Bless, with love....The Rabe Family, Ben, Tara, Meghan, Madeline, Kylie & Sidney.
Lori and Family:
My heartfelt condolences to you and your children as well as extended family on David's sudden passing. Nothing can ever prepare us on the loss of a special loved one. It is obvious from the comments here that he was a wonderful husband to you, father to your children and friend to many. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. God bless you Vicki Spiten
What a man, what a man, what a man, What a mighty good man...........yes he is. Want to take a minute or two and give much respect due. A pinch of Salt -n- Pepa lyrics ring so true! Dave, you are with us in our hearts and prayers as you take your next journey. Joe and I are so blessed to have made memories with you and Lori. You make us smile and warm our hearts. Love ya, Dave
Lori, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. So sorry for your loss.
Lori and family,
I am struggling right now to know what to write as I am sure you are all overcome with grief and the idea of Dave being gone most likely feels unreal. Thoughts, prayers and hugs are being sent your way. Hold onto each other and all the family and friends around you that love you and and will certainly be there for you. I am sorry that I cannot attend the memorial service as I will be out of town but I will be in touch in the coming week(s) to see if there is anything you need. Sending you peace and love, Patty Winkels
Lori, Anna & family, we were so very saddened by Dave's very premature death. Life can be so unpredictable. Our thoughts & prayers are with your whole family at this very difficult time. We definitely would be at his memorial service but we left for Florida yesterday for the winter. Sandi & Jim Beier
Lori and family, You have my deepest sympathy. You have been and will continue to be in my prayers . God Bless You all.
Lori and family,
I was so sorry to hear of your husband's untimely passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and you family.
Love to you all.
I just can not wrap my mind and heart around his loss. He was such a good man and I'm sure his absence will make a gaping hole in your family, Lori. My prayers go out to you and your children. I will always remember Dave as a kind, down to earth person, with a strong sense of right and wrong. He was fun to be around and always willing to lend a hand when asked. Though he is gone far too soon, he was a good man and is surely safely perched in heaven. I imagine him looking down on us now and hoping we all take care to value the important things in our lives today; for tomorrow may not come.
There are only a handful of people I consider close friends. Dave was one of those people. I am grateful to have been his friend and that I could be with him in his last moments. Lori, Matt, Anna, and Chris, my heart goes out to you and know that Dave's legacy will live on through his friends and family. He touched so many people in his own, awkward little way. And this spirit will live on. Words cannot explain the loss. I am truly devastated as I know you are, Just know that time heals and Dave's legacy will live on. I will miss him so much!
We are going to miss Dave. I always like to stop in at work and talk to Dave are hearts and prayers go out to his family. Best wishes the Hansen Family David ,Lisa, Susan and Luke.
