Dave spent his youth in Winnetka. IL. He attended Knox

worked as an advertising salesman in radio and televions
throughout his life. He spent most of his life in Petoskey, MI
where he had an interest in and worked for WJML radio. He
was well known and regarded by all and was noted to be the life

work at the Petoskey Center for the Arts, the Petoskey Hospice
and Rotary.
Following a stroke, Dave relocated to Grand Junction to be
with family. There he continued volunteer work at Heirlooms

Dave was an outgoing, gregarious man with uncountable
friendships forged over the years. His connections were strong
and lasting as he kept up correspondence with friends and
family around the world.
Friends and loved ones are encouraged to donate in his name
to local Hospice organizations.
A memorial celebration of Dave’s life is planned for the fall in
the Petoskey area.
