    So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. He installed our windows and was always available when I needed a repair. My condolence’s to the entire family.

    We were fortunate to have Dave’s name recommended for a renovation two years ago and he was a perfect fit for us! Dave brought his sunny personality into our home every morning along with his Contractor’s experience of many talents. Something to note: our job was to begin the 2nd week in March, just as Covid became known to all of us in SW Florida. Many contractors might have cancelled our contract to follow a Stay At Home mandate, but Dave did not disappoint– he showed up to work, albeit with safety measures. Hearing of Dave’s recent passing greatly saddened us. We feel our home is special because it was touched by Dave.

    Dave was one of the most pleasant, friendly, and down to earth person I’ve ever met. Not only were we friends but I also had the opportunity to work with him on various projects . His carpentry skills were impeccable and just working with him was a joy! RIP my friend!
