    I had the pleasures of knowing Dave and working side by side with him while we both were police officers in southern Thurston Co. Dave had a certain way about him that could calm you down and look at things a little differently. I followed him through facebook and watch him battle his cancer with courage and strength. He posted his good days and his bad but never once complained that I noticed. Dave will be missed. I know he is now free of pain and in a much better place. Until we meet again Dave. God Bless.
