He will be remembered for his market gardens, and sales of organic produce locally. His many interests included history, geology, nutrition and health, minerology, animal husbandry, and antiques. and he was always willing to share his latest findings and stories.
Dave will be laid to rest, at his request, at the Mendenhall Cemetery in Onaway, Idaho. The service will be private. While we, his family, close this last chapter of his life, we want to thank the valient and kind healthcare workers, loving neighbors, and others who helped him through his final days, especially the wonderful people of Gritman Medical Center.
