Sally and family,
Rest in peace Dave.
You will be missed by all of us at IPC.
It was our honor getting to know you not just as a coworker but as a friend.
I love you so much dad, rest easy 🥺🖤
Rest in peace David I will miss the many phone calls we had which always ended up with us giving each other shit. I was always telling you that my Big Block Chevy would kick your Small Block Chevys ass. But I finally convince you to build a Big Block Chevy. The one friendly argument we always had about us racing my Chevelle against your Monty Carlo can't happen until the day I meet up with you. You will forever be in my thoughts
