Hello Ashley and Clayton, I’m sorry for your loss. I know that Dave will be greatly missed. We lived next door and all became good friends. I know I wasn’t around a lot. My grandchildren were teenagers and my mother was having health issues. I will try to be a better friend to Ashley and Clayton. I’ve never lost a spouse and I’m sure you are hurting. You have my number so call me anytime you need to talk. I’m proud to say I knew Dave. We always had good debates on music and other things. I love you guys. Love Glenda Glenda Mantooth, June 23, 2020 Wow Buddy, I can't believe you're gone. I just know you're doing the coin thing from up above and talking up a storm. I helped you get started and you blew this hobby away and did very well for yourself. It was an honor to know you my friend. Rest easy, so long, I won't forget you.

His laugh was so genuine and contagious. I will miss him and his amazing heart and personality very much. My love goes out to all his family and friends.
