He first worked for Evans and Son Furniture in Winchester, then Cohens Furniture in Jacksonville, before retiring with the U.S. Postal Service as a rural mail carrier for many years. Dave was his families Google before Google was ever invented.  He was our knower and fixer of everything.  Dave had a great passion for all motorcycles, especially his beloved Harley.  He loved talking about guns, going to his rendezvous, making his copper work, and helping us with our projects. He was a perfectionist and took great pride in everything he made.  He was lovingly called Uncle Davy by all his nieces and nephews and he was kind, funny, sarcastic, loved to aggravate us all, and just the very best husband, dad, and grandpa we could’ve ever asked for.  He will be missed greatly each and every day.
