Karen, I am so sorry to read of Dave's passing. All those years ago, living in Panguitch, have so many wonderful memories of you and your family. Our babies are now grown adults, the babies we hold are grandchildren and our lives have taken us on many different life experiences. Sending my love, Kathryn Parry

Dear Karen and family, We were so saddened to hear of Dave's passing. We are keeping you all in our prayers. Joe and I sold
our Enoch home in July 2019, and we moved up to East Wenatchee Washington. Our daughter Jenny and family are just a few
miles away. Our health is gradually declining. But we have wonderful memories of you and your family from Panguitch (when
Justin was born) and then in Enoch. The whole world should be made up of people like you! God bless! Joe and Donna Bales

Our family is so deeply saddened by the passing of Dave. We have many great memories of him flying planes down the street, whittling neckerchief slides for scouts, many cub scouting memories, helping Grant replace our roof without being asked, helping every neighbor, his beautiful garden onions, tomatoes etc. which he shared. He was truly a GREAT man that was truly like our Savior. He will be sorely missed. We love Karen and the kids and hope and pray for them to be comforted. Your neighbors Grant & Linda Stewart.
