Dave loved an adventure and lived life with a generous heart, he didn’t know a stranger, and was always quick with a joke. He was a graduate of Urbana High School. Dave owned a landscaping business in Connecticut for many years before he moved home in 1992 to help care for his mother. He then went to work in the area as a florist and could be counted on bringing his creations to holiday gatherings. He enjoyed cars and going to car shows and spending time with his brothers often at a tractor show. His hobbies included horticulture, cooking, a love of wine and sharing his knowledge of wine and his dogs. Memorial contributions may be made to the Humane Society. Condolences may be offered at
