    So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. Holsteins and farming were his passion and over the years he was a great supporter of Holstein activities and 4-H. He was a valued member of the EOWQ Championship Show committee and we will think of him on Thursday at the Show. May you find strength and comfort in the caring thoughts of family, friends and your contacts in the agriculture community and the wonderful memories of the life you shared with Dave.

    Although we new Dave for only a few short years…..we had come to know him as a good and kind man.

    My sincere hugs to David’s children and family. So very sad to hear that earth has lost such a great man. Heaven gained a farmer, whom I am sure is already lining up the cows for milking and planning next years crop. Rest In Peace.

    Our deepest sympathy. Praying for the family and especially for Carley, Megan and Ryan. We first met Dave in Peterborough in the late 80’s when he went to visit Debbie at Trent University and kept in touch with their family throughout the years. May you all sense God’s presence and comfort in the days ahead.
