I remember Dave as a really nice and easy-going guy. Moved to Vermont before DAve's bar ownership days, but I'm sure he attracted many people who became friends.

Dave is someone who I remember from grade school onward who never harrassed me, as some of the other boys did.  Grateful for that memory.  Rest in peace Dave.  Thanks for posting Cheryl.
