At his request, there will be no funeral services.
The family requests no flowers. However, if you haven’t already, please consider being an organ donor.
Dave’s wish, for years, was to get a new heart and then to be able to get back on his Harley motorcycle and ride. By being an organ donor, you can give hope to hundreds of thousands of people that are on the national organ transplant waiting list.
Memorials may be made to the American Heart Association.
