Dave was a dedicated hard worker; his proudest accomplishment was becoming a licensed journeyman electrician and member of Boston Local 103. Dave enjoyed spending quality time with his nephew Vinny, living life to the fullest, traveling, camping, fishing, telling stories, joking and making people laugh he was an avid Pats and Bruins fan.
Dave was equally loyal and devoted to his family and countless amazing friends; too many to name, with his huge smile and contagious laugh.
