  1. I am so sorry to hear of David’s passing. My condolences to all of you his family. Dave and I were good friends in high school and worked together the summer of “64”. We lost track after we both entered the service. I regret that I didn’t stay in closer contact. I salute Dave for his service to country and dedication to his family. May God have only the best for you Linda and your family as you go forward. Sincerely, Jim Johnson

  2. It was always a fun time when uncle David and family would come to South Dakota for a visit. Sometimes we would drive to Vermillion for a few days, or sometimes David and family would drive up to our farm north of Holabird. Uncle David was a great story teller. I remember during a visit in the mid 70’s, David, my uncle Ben Nemec and my Dad stayed up late one night telling army stories, they kept me, a young teenager at that time engrossed for several hours that evening. I’m sure that there many more people that also have fond memories of him. He will surly be missed and I am sorry for your loss. Victor Nemec and family
