My Mentor and friend, so many great times spent together and your weekly Thursday visits to the restaurant that I always looked forward to with our trading of stories will be sorely missed.

Sail on Dave. Anyone who lives and breathes in North County and beyond must have enjoyed his terrific prime rib and don't forget about the shells & sauce ! He always knew how to make events happen no matter the challenges. One of North Adams' unsung heros.
Prayers and condolences to family.
