My sincere condolences to the family. I have know Dave since Junior H.S. I'm so glad were were able to play golf the last time he visited Colorado. I enjoyed his stories and laughter. After our last round, my son said "Dave is a funny guy".
You will be missed.

Like many I knew Dave because we worked at IDOT at the same time. He was such a wonderful, always smiling and always professional. I only saw him a few times a year or so after he retired but was always greated with 'Hey Kibbs!'. He will be missed by many and if there is golf in heaven I am sure he will playing.
