    David, you meant so much to so many people. Your kind, sensitive, caring nature made everyone you came in contact with feel important. You were always watching out for the underdog.
    I was so hoping that we would be out snowmobiling again, getting lost just one more time! I will cherish those memories forever, along with so many more.
    Being around you and Elaine, and seeing the love that you had for each other was inspiring and infectious. The closeness that you shared with Dennis and Jackie was untouchable. They are so lucky!
    You were one of a kind David. Words can never describe how much we will miss you.

    Elaine,Dennis, and Jackie,
    We are very much in sorrow. We first met through our sons playing sports together. It carried on a bond and friendship that has lasted for years. Dave was a great man and father. Everyone liked Dave. I will always think of the good times, whether that was embarassing our sons rooting for them at a basketball game, or me, Dave, and Gerry teaching Pete,Dennis, and Greg a lesson on the court, while we secretly wondered when one of the old guys were going to pass out.
    Dave, you will be missed and never forgotten.

    Love,
    The Grasso Family

  25. Priscilla Hogan says:

    To one of my very best friends, Elaine, and her children, Dennis and Jaclyn: I could never express how terribly sorry I am about your loss. How we all loved David for his gentle, sweet, kind man he was. His beautiful smile as we see on the picture you have chosen. How I remember us girls heading off to the cottage, trying to be independent, and when we got there we always needed to call David to help us get things up and running the way they should be. He would walk us through, step by step, with our flashlights on, helping us patiently like he always was. Such great memories of David. A wonderful man, husband, father and friend. Elaine – your relationship with David was one always to be admired as you were true partners. Elaine – you worked so hard to find an answer to his illness, never giving up, even when some of the most pronoun doctors could not help,you continued to find an answer. Your strength through his whole illness was incrediable. A true partner, wife, friend to the end. When time moves on I know all those great memories of David will help you, Dennis and Jaclyn move on. Love you, Priscilla

  28. Andrew Skipp says:

    Dave was a most conscientious person, always taking personal responsibility to get the job done right. He was like family to those of us who worked with him at Hubbard-Hall. He made you want to do things the right way so you wouldn’t disappoint him. If it was not up to his standards he would let you know about it. With Dave you always knew where you stood; he was a person I trusted and admired.

  29. Charlene Ingram says:

    Dave, I’m so glad that a guy like you got the best wife I have ever known anyone to have. I can’t think of anyone more deserving. I have never met a person more thoughtful and caring than you. You made anyone that had the privilege of being around you a better person. Always going the extra mile for everyone unconditionally. That is real love. I’ts what your whole being was about… I love you

  30. Lisa Kent says:

    David..What a huge presence to our family and great memories.. I still laugh when I think about the time all 16 of us stayed in Wells and were teasing and laughing with each other. You said so many funny things.. Amanda Steven and Sean had so many great times in Maine being tossed around the back of your boat while tubing with Captain David and Aunt Elaine of course Jackie making sure all heads were above water.. and Dennis keeping the rowdies in line.. We all looked forward to your egg breakfasts in the morning..of course after you got up earlier than anyone for the Dunkin run..Always so thoughtful and giving to others.. We are so going to miss your smile, your gentle presence, your character..and your humor. The great Man , Husband, Uncle and friend you were to all of us..
