Dave enjoyed vacationing to Florida as well as family trips to Maine. He loved nature and spent a great amount of his time at the Pittsfield State Forest and Berry Pond. In addition, Dave had a love for fishing, going “over the mountain” to Lebanon Valley Speedway, and his frequent trips to get spring water and maple syrup.
Dave was passionate about sports, especially his favorite baseball team, the New York Yankees. He was very knowledgeable in his love for politics, music, and classic movies. Dave had a brilliant memory when it came to identifying family photos, lineages, and cooking recipes.
