Having been predeceased by his loving wife Carolee Pierce in 1999, Dave devoted all of his love, time, and energy during the last 20 years to his family. He was involved in every aspect of his children and grandchildren’s lives, and took great pride in the shore house he built in Point Pleasant, NJ, where the family has enjoyed every summer together with Dave for the last 30 years.
