Messages for the Family

  1. Josh Clemmons says:
    So very sorry to hear of Mr. Dave’s passing. It was a pleasure getting to know him better working together at church over the past few years. Even on so many nights when he wasn’t feeling the best, he would faithfully serve his church. I have a lot of respect for him and will miss him.
  2. Scott Hart says:
    I want to express my sincerest condolences to Vicki and the family. I had the privilege of working with Dave for 12 years while I was the Branch Manager of Equitable Tennessee. Dave was always respectful and a straight shooter. He took pride in telling it how it was in a very unfiltered way, and I appreciated that about him. You never had to doubt where he stood. The world needs more people like that. Dave was also very kind. When I first moved to Tennessee, he took me around to show me Wilson County, the fairgrounds, his place, his cows and his bees. He really helped me form a connection to Tennessee and I appreciated that. He had a special way of finding things that were familiar to someone and making a connection. Dave also had a servant’s heart, always wanting to make an impact in the lives of others. He served in a leadership capacity in our company’s National Associates Forum where he communicated the needs of clients and advisors directly with the top brass of the company. That servant leadership took a lot of his time, but he made a difference in the lives of others, and I know he took great pride in that. I wish I could be there to hug your necks and honor Dave’s life, but I live in Texas now, and won’t be able to make the journey. God bless y’all and know we will be thinking about and praying for the family, friends, and loved ones.

    Vicki, I’m saddened to hear of Dave’s passing. He was very instrumental in getting me involved in the National Associate Forum and motivating me in my career. He was a super guy and great friend to many. I regret that I lost contact with him in recent years. Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.
