Uncle Dave was always a larger than life figure for me. As a kid, I would see him building his own tractors, carrying huge rocks to build the chimney on the family room or chopping trees down and flinging them around like they were just sticks. He was a mountain. He was Hercules. But he always had a smile on his face and always made me laugh.

Thank you Uncle Dave for all those great memories, I'm grateful I have them. See you soon, Billy
