My deepest condolences to Dave's family and friends. I only met Davis last year, but I instantly liked him. He always had a smile on his face and was pleasant. He was pleased to know that I knew his brother Steve and aunt Beverly. You could hear his love for his family in his voice when he referred to them. Dave did some work for me and it was always top notch. The pride a man takes in his work says a lot about him. Every time I see the beautiful wood floors he brought back to their original glory I will think of Dave.
