    For almost forty years, we had the honor of calling Dave and Marion friends. There is an empty place in our hearts. Our love and sympathy to Marion, David and Carly and her family.

    So glad we got to visit with Dave and Marion at our reunion in 2014 at Gunlock, Utah. I have known Dave since our Army officer training in 1966 and although assigned to a very critical national defense mission in Germany, he was always able to remain calm under immense pressure. He was a level headed leader of soldiers who readily followed him. Although we may no longer see that twinkle in his eyes, I will always remember it. May God watch over him on his last march to mess. He has left Marion with a lifetime of memories to sustain her during this difficult time. We are all better for having known and served with him.

    My heartfelt sympathy goes to Marian and family. I'm sure David will be missed by all. Reading some of the tributes below I noticed he was a member of the EAGO club. My late husband, Robert (Big Bob) Doscher was also a member and perhaps our paths crossed over the years.
