I worked with Dave over 15 years ago. I always enjoyed talking sports with Dave. We played fantasy football for several years after we stopped working together.

Dave was manager of the first wrestling team I coached in Sterling. His claim to fame was his undefeated record that year. He finished the season 7-0, after taking 7 forfeits. We really had a great time and he loved being part of the program. He would do anything for Sterling High School athletics and he will be sorely missed.
Please accept our sincere condolences.
Don, Diane, Ryan and Christopher Mekeel

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences. May many memories and family give you strength in the days ahead. I am always here for you. Don't hesitate to call.

My prayers go out to Dave's family. So sorry for your loss. I first met Dave when he was our Schwann man, he would always give my son a hard time. He will truly be missed. RIP Dave.
