My great privilege to have known Dave in his roles in classrooms and particularly on the playgrounds of Quashnet School. He was an Olympian there as well ,leading and teaching through his character which was infused with empathy, genuine kindness and caring for the vulnerable as well as gifted. I'm saddened to learn that he is no longer on this life's playground. I hope that your family's sorrow may be somewhat sweetened by such memories.

I just learned the very sad news of Dave’s passing and send my heartfelt sympathy to the family. The 1st flash I had was of Dave’s beautiful smile and friendly, enthusiastic nature as he rolled into my classroom in Mashpee. When I read his obituary, I smiled even more because I had captured that expression so clearly in my mind before seeing the great picture that was included. Dave was an inspiration. We met when I was Bruce’s 1st grade teacher. Then I had the pleasure of seeing Dave more routinely when, for a short time our paths overlapped , both working at Quashnet.. He will be remembered fondly

Dave brought joy and a sense of pride to all of us at the Cape Cod Curling Club. When Dave and his family left for Florida, his send-off party at the club, with so many attending, was one to remember. A beautiful picture of our Olympians: Dave, Meghan Lino and Steve Emt , today hangs proudly in our warm room.

In addition to the sadness the news of Dave's passing brings is also my gratefulness of having known him. What immediately comes to mind is the smile that was always there whenever I saw him at Quashnet where we worked together. The entire school was so excited and proud of him when he competed in the Paralympics and the joy we all felt when he returned is a lovely memory. My thoughts are with you.
Mairead Mayen left a message on April 18, 2024:
I am so sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. I worked with him at the Quashnet School, where his love for people was so evident. Whether it was in the copy room or out at recess, he was always smiling and making the best of each day. The day we held a pep rally in his and his teams’ honor before the Paralympics will always be a fond memory, as will seeing him compete on television. It was like knowing a famous person!! I will remember him most, though, for his enthusiasm and friendliness. Our family is sending you love while you mourn this amazing person.
