Markus, my heart is heavy learning about Dave, and memories flood me with all the times our families spent together. The evenings spent in our kitchen with your folks, the games our brothers played, and you and me.... our dads coaching. This life gets shorter every day, doesn't it? May God bless you and yours.

Mark, I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed talking to David about his family when he would come into the bank. I retired January 31st and have not seen him since. You and the family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dave was a great friend in high school. Always loved him playing sports and have him beat me at every one of them! May peace be with him and condolences to his entire family. Thinking of you my friend.

So sorry to hear of Dave’s passing. Have not really seen Dave since high school, although I have thought of him often over the years. He was truly one of my most favorite people in this world. We had a lot of fun together throughout our school years from grade 1 thru 12. May he Rest In Peace.Thoughts and Prayers to the family.

Mark, I was so shocked and saddened to see the news about Dave. Losing two brothers so close together is an almost unimaginable blow. My memories of David go back that great MHS basketball team of 1968-69. Dave and Larry and Kirk Hardman and Jim Scott and the rest. So many good times. You and the whole Burke family are in my prayers.
