  • I will always remember my last conversation with David – fall 2010 at Rite Aid on East Ave. We talked of the economy and politics. We agreed on many of the topics expressed. When we parted we looked at each other and gently touched each other on the shoulder. I knew then I may never see him again. God bless you Dave.

  • My sympathies to Dave’s wife & family. Dave did sheetrock & plaster jobs on my house for almost 20 years. I always loved it when he came – he was such a craftsman, he practically didn’t need to sand, his work was so smooth. Dave was always cheerful and considerate in keeping his appointments. I really miss him! He went way too young.

  • I went to school with Anthony, and I didn’t know David that well. But we all grew up in South Norwalk! The family will be in my prayers and thoughts. Rest in peace, David.
