Dear Maxine and family, Our sincere sympathy to all of you. I(Jeanette)knew David since I was a young girl. He delivered fuel to our home, we bought gas, etc. at the station, and later knew him when I became an adult. He always had a friendly smile all through the years. I haven't seen him for quite a while now. May you all cherish your memories of him. May the Lord bless all of you! Dale and Jeanette Quanbeck

Dear Maxine,Pam and Jon. Am saddened to hear that David has passed away. Like my Dad I believe that he had a full life surrounded by those who loved him. My daughter, Tracy, who lives in Hatton just a block from you said that she had assisted David when he spent some time in the retirement home and that he was great fun to be around, just as I remember him. Although I have not seen any of you for quite some time, I still have fond memories of the times we shared and wish you all only the best and will be thinking of you during these sad times. Tim
