Raised and lived his life in the Blackstone area, Dave worked on the family farm for many years. He passionately owned and operated Elite Luxury Bus.
Dave and his family enjoyed spending time at their lake house in the Ozarks where they would share many great family memories. He loved boating, hunting and was an avid Chicago Cubs fan. His love of sports even led him to become a referee for basketball and volleyball. A hobby he shared with his wife SueZ.
When his kids were younger he would help them to show their cattle at area fairs and competitions. Most recently Dave was really enjoying following the grandkids in their various activities. He will be sadly missed by his loving family and loyal friends.
