Throughout his professional career, Dave was very active in Rotary clubs wherever he lived. After he retired to Hawaii in 2001, Rotary played a much bigger role in his life. In 2007, he was awarded the Service Above Self Award, the highest individual honor that can be bestowed on a Rotarian. Dave also received The Rotary Foundation’s two highest awards, the Meritorious Service and Distinguished Service Awards. Dave loved to travel and was fortunate enough to visit almost 100 countries. His favorite place to visit was one that he had not been to before, in anticipation of the memories it would bring. Dave is survived by his wife of 40 years, Mary Ann, a sister, a son from a first marriage, cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as a host of longtime friends and fellow Rotarians. As a Navy veteran, Dave’s ashes will be placed at the National Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl on January 14, 2015, with a committal ceremony at 9:30 a.m. All are welcome to attend.
