Condolence & Memory Journal

I worked with Dave at the Elyria Walmart then in the Lorain store . He was the hardware associate and I was in the sporting goods dept. which made us neighbors. He would always help out with his knowledge of fishing and hunting. Or if I had any concerns about hardware he was there . I'll always remember his stories of his family he would share with me when we would stop after work at Applebee's. His passing was so unexpected and shocking to hear. My prayers to his family during this difficult time. Rest in peace my friend.
