  1. There are no words to express our feelings. Except that we send our deepest sympathy to everyone. Dave was special. We shall miss him.
    But I can picture David and Lowell sitting together talking things over.
    Lee and Sandy Jacobson

  2. Dave was such a wonderful man! We bonded over our love for pool while he lived in the Cedar Rapids Iowa area. He will be greatly missed! Love you Dave!

  3. My sympathy goes out to all of David’s friends and family. I doubt I have seen him since I left Albert Lea in 1981, but I have good memories of his sense of humor. His love of life shows in his eyes in the photo posted and is one of the things I remember about him.

    Rest well. We will all meet again on the other side.

  4. On behalf of those of us at the Cedar Rapids and Marion post offices that were honored to know Dave, we offer our sincere sympathy. He was one of the most genuine guys we had the pleasure to work with and for. He was honest, kind, appreciative and really fun. He was a leader and a friend. His family is in our prayers!
