May 31, 1923 - Jan. 19, 2013

Dave grew up in California, and was a proud 1948 graduate of Cal Berkeley.

Most of Daves business career was spent at Butler Mfg. Co., where he won many awards in sales and marketing. He also was a VP of Pascoe Steel.

Dave retired to Bend in 1990 and resided here until 2000. He became a very active volunteer in the community, serving as head of the Advisory Board of the Deschutes Library System. He was a SMART volunteer, as well as a member of The Bend Golf and CC.

This kind and generous spirit is missed by his wife, Betty; son, Lance; and granddaughter, Darcy, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, including Bend residents, Lisa Leary and husband Steve, and their children, Brianna, McKenzie, and Nicolas.

Donations in Daves memory may be made to the Deschutes Co. Library System or to The High Desert Museum.
