Together, Dave and Margo enjoyed traveling and spending winters in Rockport, TX. Dave loved boating and spending quality time with family and friends at the family home on the Mississippi River near Kellogg. He loved his grandchildren dearly and spoiled them with boat and four-wheeler rides, fishing trips, and homemade mac n’ cheese.
