Dave was a quiet kind of guy but friendly to most who got to know him. He lived on Belvedere Street near me. After Dave and I got to know each other we went out on several 'double dates'.  He had a great smile and sense of humor. He joined the Marine Corp after high school and I was saddened when I read his obit in the paper. Another one of our classmates that gave their life to serve our country during Vietnam. Rest in Peace Dave....I remember the great times we had at Glass.  Frank Daughtrey
