    We know Dave’s name will be inscribed in the book of life, because Dave (can’t call him David) himself was a force of nature. A truly wonderful human being, with a sense of self, a sense of humor and a sense of justice. He is, and will be, missed.

    Not talked in sooooo many years, but always such a welcoming, affable, sweet personality…..my condolences to the whole extended family….it’s not just the brothers David & Si where fond memories exist, but goes all the way back to Kurt & Bella, too! AS THEM…MAY HIS MEMORY BE A BLESSING.

    So very sorry to hear of David’s passing. I worked with him many years ago. He was such a nice man. Susan and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    My deepest condolences to Susan and the rest of Dave’s family. I used to work with Dave (at BNY Clearing/Kemper) and I have fond memories of Dave. I specifically remember taking the train to Chicago with Dave & Margo Alarupi on a consistent basis, in order to conduct training to new Financial Representatives. The stories that Dave would tell to these new representatives were classic. Dave will be missed.

    Worked with Dave so many years ago. He was a gem of a man. Heaven is celebrating its newest arrival. Warm hugs to you Susan.
    With love, Marty Joyce (now Przybylski)

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family on this bittersweet day of both grieving and special memories. I only met David once or twice through Simon, but I know he was a special person and loved greatly by all of his family. May your memories sustain and nourish you as David enters the kingdom of heaven.
