Dear Jan and Family:
We were so fortunate to have known Dave. We remember fondly the boat rides you two gave us on Little Cedar Lake when you lived across the street from us. May God comfort you in ways that words and people cannot do.

Dear Janice and family, We are so sorry to read about Dave's passing. These last years have been a long siege for all of you, but Dave always put the best face on the ups and downs when you two came to the WCREA meetings. It was easy to read between the lines, however, if one knew the two of you well. Our hearts go out to you not only at Dave's passing but at the months that you were brave, coping, and continuing to "do." Dave was a matter-of-fact guy and a great teacher. He bravely kept on keeping on with the best of them. We send our love.
Dave and Mary Schleif

Mr King was my teacher at Badger. For 50 years I didnt know his first name, it was always Mr King. His most laughable phrase was "You dingy" RIP SIR

I had Mr. King as a teacher at Mc Clane. I will always remember him as a fun and kind teacher who let us paint his car for some festivity. My sympathy to the family.
