    We are so sad to lose you. Your nephews and niece will remember you as the coolest uncle ever! As a brother inlaw you were always so kind. Since you have passed we have read so many wonderful tributes to you! You probably didn’t realize how many lives you touched. You were loved many. You were a humble man who lived life on his own terms. I am so sad we didn’t have more time. The world lost a little bit of magic when you left. Peace and Love Hippie Dude

      The world has lost a genuinely bright light. Hippie Dude, my man’s, you are one of my oldest friends and I cherish the time we had together. So many memories and nothing but good vibes. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that didn’t immediately like you. You are one of a kind, an encyclopedia of music, and the kindest person I’ll ever meet. Thank you for the impact you had on my life. Love and miss you brother!

    Our deepest sympathy to Daves family. Dave was a really good friend to our family and Godfather to my son. We had great times together for many years. Loved his service today and all the great stories about him. May you rest in peace Dave.

    Thank you so much, Dave. You were such a great person to work with. You had a huge heart and a deep passion for music. I’m unbelievably lucky to have known you.
