Dave had a passionate love for the Patriots. If you weren't a fan, you weren't allowed to watch the game with him. He never missed a game and always had a bud light in hand to cheer them on.

Family was everything to him and if you weren't family, he treated you like you were. He loved the holidays, especially Christmas. Cooking and decorating for all and any holidays and events including outside for all seasons. He loved cooking on the grill and gardening and just hanging out in his yard with his dog Maggie. He loved talking to the neighbors, yard sales, camping, building and Dunkin ice coffee. He would do anything for anyone. He was always right there to lend a hand. Dave had many alias names throughout his life, such as Big Dave, Big D, Dangerous Dave, Deck A Day Dave, Neighbor Dave and Davey. He had touched so many lives and was loved by all who knew him, (his personality was contagious). He was dedicated, loving, kind, caring, courageous, brave and all-around happy guy, whom when being around, made you happy too.
