      We were blessed to know Dave/Charlie. With such a heavy heart 💔 our family sends our deepest condolences. We have so many cherished memories when I worked at the Town Hall, 4-H, Racine County Fair (and swine barn), RCBO, Birthdays, Graduations, Weddings, Hunter Safety and more with Dave/Charlie that we will hold close to our hearts forever. Kay, Chuck and Chad love, hugs and prayers to you and all the family. As Dave/Charlie would say, “we are just a field across the way” so if you need anything we are here for you❤with love always!
