Tim worked with Davey at the Waste Water Plant. He was always so nice to work with and he was a great guy! He was devoted to his party and was a hard worker. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of David's death. Although I only met him once I know he was dearly loved by his brother, Gary, and will be missed by many.
May God grant peace to all who are grieving.
