"Dave, you will always be remembered for your heart of gold. You always had chocolate and an encouraging word for those bad times. Rest in peace. To the Borck family, I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know you kids and your families were spoken of often with much love and great pride."
"So sad to hear! Dave was a great guy and always willing to help me out! Great memories from Bentwaters! RIP Dave, prayers to family and friends. "
"I am so distraught to hear that Dave is no longer with us. He was a blast to be around. My biggest memory of many memories of Dave was his ability to act. I requested that he help me with my lesson on conflict management. I told him to go all out. Man did he! He let me have it in front of a room full of college students (ROTC cadets). At the end he through a stack of papers all over the class room and walked out. I then looked at all the cadets (one actually jumped up in a panic to pick up all the papers) and asked ?can this happen and how should you handle conflict?? Then I had to take a break from laughing/crying so hard. All the cadets were freaked! Dave was perfect - I think he enjoyed yelling at me a little too much. Thanks Dave for the great times. You were a true friend. "
