He beamed every time that he was in the same room with his grandchildren. He enjoyed attending any event for them no matter how big or small. He was loved by his family and friends and truly was the epitome of joy and happiness. Dave had a smile that lit up the room and an iconic laugh that could brighten up even the darkest day.
