My mother asked me to express her condolences to Pat and her family when she read about Dave's passing in our local newspaper. My mom is Theresa Dugey who resides in Phillipsburg NJ. She and my father were owners of the Hideaway Inn in Stewartsville NJ. My father passed in 2011, but mom is doing well and has fond memories of Pat and her husband.

Words will never explain how much our family will miss Pop. Always someone I count on to tell me like it is, whether you agreed or not. He always had such a passion and drive for everything that you loved: family, racing, fishing and Nan. His love for ice fishing will live on this year we teach our boys your favorite sport (besides racing) and I wish we could share our stories with you. I'm so glad my little boys got a chance to meet their pop pop and love you as much as I did. And I'll always cherish how highly you thought of John, it means the world to me that you loved him like family right from the start. He used to have this banner on his truck that said Riding on the edge, I'll never forget how he loved to make me laugh by driving a little fast when I was a kid. Also our journeys on your truck as a kid, my most cherished memories. I was so young I don't remember much but I know Im thankful for every single moment I spent with you. The comfort knowing that you aren't in pain anymore is the only thing keeping us going.
Keep it under 100 up there Pop, Give my dad a hug for me.

Words of Love, peace and comfort to our sister Pat and family.
Dave was and is a man full of life, love and compassion. He brought a smile to all who knew him and whose paths he crossed especially being on the road as a Truck driver. He was not only our brother but a friend whom we love and shared many conversations on the phone since we are so far away. We and he enjoyed talking about his passion for football (Go -NE Patriots)
and his NASCAR Races. We will definitely miss , him but he left behind so many wonderful memories especially when we visited him up North and had such fun with jokes and talks of family especially grandkids and great-grand kids.
We know he was growing tired and needed to rest so- Soar high with the Angels above and know your memory will forever be etched in our hearts. Big hugs to you Love Kathy and Frank
I ask the Lord for Peace and comfort to our brother and family. RIP Dave and God bless
