  3. Although I never had the opportunity to get to know Dave very well, whenever I would come to California for a family visit at Dana and Michael’s, Dave was always so full of interesting life stories and was so happy to share them with everyone. He seemed to take delight in the expanding Weisman family and always welcomed my small family with open arms. He will be missed. May he rest peacefully and joyfully.

  4. David used to volunteer at the hospital where I worked. I adored him. He always greeted me with a hug and kiss and I loved to hear his stories, especially about his dear wife, whom he loved and missed tremendously. He was a kind, gentle, and genuine man. I only recently learned of his passing when I visited the hospital (I haven’t worked there in over 10 years) and inquired about him, as I have thought of him fondly often through the years. I miss him. May he rest in eternal peace.
