Dave was a good provider ... working at North Branch High School as a teacher, Pro-Pak Ind., Great Lakes Corrugated and at Greif Corrugated as a foreman, where he retired.
As a dreamer... He used John Denver as a medium to reach a lot of people with the philosophy that coincided with his own. He ran a yahoo group initially of John Denver midis.
Dave loved to travel, from the far reaches of New England to south Florida and everywhere in between. Even going out to Arizona and Colorado.
