  • Dave and Family, I’m so sorry about your dad’s passing. He was a great guy with a wonderful smile. I have memories of him ice fishing on our lake and Fred and I were always watching him to make sure he didn’t fall through the ice. He really love ice fishing and his model boats. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
