I want to extend my deepest sympathies to each of you. Dave was a great guy and we knew each other since the first grade. We graduation together in 1960 from Lewistown Community High School and have been friends a long time.
I also knew your mother Mary and was honored to serve as Dave's' Best Man when they got married.
I also helped him remodel his house before they got married.
I got to know each of you as you grew up and thought that they had a wonderful family. I hope your all doing well.
Again I want to express my deepest sympathies to each of you. I will always remember Dave and Mary.
From: Daniel and Susan Harn Jan 15 2021 5:53PM Richard, Rob, and Renee,
I am deeply saddened to hear of your father's passing. As we grew up, your dad always made me feel at home and I always felt comfortable around him. Later, when he and I were "neighbors", I enjoyed the long talks we would have over the fence. He always offered me use of his tools and literally, the shirt off his back if I needed it. He was a gentle man, and a rare breed of man, one with a good heart. I am sorry to have missed the service. I only found out he had passed, today. 2 hours after the service. I will miss our talks...
