David was a long time sales rep for Copco Papers before trading it in for a more non-conventional life in the golf business. Starting as a caddie, moving into management, selling for a well-known manufacturer, then back on the golf course.

David is preceded in death by father George, mother Rosemary, sister Suzann and beloved uncle and friend James Strausser.

We are so sorry for your loss of a great guy, and true friend to so many people. Dave will be missed terribly by all who knew and loved him. We still remember the fun we had when we visited at Gary and Shelleys years ago. Take care, Love, Marcy and Ken Kristensen
