Dave graduated from Kemmerer High School in 1975. After high school in the spring, Dave attended the University of Wyoming where he graduated in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration/Finance.
Upon graduation, Dave moved back to Kemmerer and he went into business with his father, Richard, in Quality Builders and Realty. Dave remained the president of Quality Realty until his passing.
It was at a business meeting that Dave met the love of his life, Jeanette, and they later married on February 26, 1983. Dave was a loving husband and father. He was a dedicated, hardworking and loyal man who worked diligently to give his family the best possible life.
Dave loved Kemmerer, and was always involved in the community in any way he could be, through numerous terms on the Kemmerer City Council, as a term as mayor, as a member of the St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and a member of the South Lincoln Hospital Board, Dave fought to represent the place he loved and its residents, many of whom were family and friends to him. He would do anything he could to help his community members. He also loved any chance he got to coach or follow his sons in various sports and activities. Dave loved telling stories, jokes, and passing on smiles.
When Dave wasn’t working, he loved spending time taking drives upcountry with his wife; watching his favorite teams the Wyoming Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Notre Dame, and the Green Bay Packers; and taking the dogs for runs.
One of Dave’s favorite things to do was to take the family to Laramie on a fall Saturday, cheer on the Pokes and enjoy a beautiful day in Laramie.
