Even after he stopped competing he shared his love of sports and talents with his children. He played mixed beach tournaments with his daughter Lisa, coached his daughter Julie’s softball team to a state championship, and played and attended many golf tournaments with his son Tony. After he married his best friend Anne, Dave became a loving supportive Pop to his new children DeAnna and Kaleen . Later in life, he continued the tradition with his grandson Presley, teaching skills in golf and baseball. Dave enjoyed golf and watching his cherished dogs Duke, Banzai and DynOmite play agility with Anne.
He is survived by his wife, Anne, children, Lisa, Julie, Tony, DeAnna, and Kaleen, and his grandchildren Julianna, Nik, Samuel, Kyle and Presley. He was preceded in death by his mother Lucretia and father Erle “Curly” and his beloved dogs Rocky and Bogey.
