    It was the saddest news I heard yesterday! Dave was the life of the Lyell/Andy neighborhood for years. From graduation parties to the car drive throughs….Dave will always be the best ‘mayor’ of the neighborhood. I will hold those memories forever. Great man!

    The light that IS Davey will never be diminished! From cherished husband to devoted father and grandfather, and loyal, caring friend, he will carry on in the hearts of all who knew him. We will miss his antics, his always-ready sense of humor, and above all, we will miss David being David! To Bin, and all the family, our profound sense of loss and love.
