Dave was employed for over 36 years as a delivery driver for Amerigas Propane in Elkhart. In his spare time, he enjoyed spending time outdoors fishing, hunting, mushroom hunting and gardening. He also loved watching Westerns on tv, working puzzles, reading and playing games on his Ipad. He was also an avid fan of sports and followed both the Chicago Cubs and the Green Bay Packers.
Most of all, Dave loved his family and was extremely proud of all of his grandchildren. During their school years, Dave was happy to serve as a “chauffeur” for all of his grandchildren to and from school. His sense of humor and peaceful demeanor will be greatly missed.
