    Sorry to learn of Dave’s passing. We attended the Greenville public schools together.
    Enjoyed the times we had at Baldwin Lake. Dave lived there and we never wanted for fun times. My condolences to the Lowery family.

    I am sad to hear of Dave’s death. Dave was one of my favorite cousins. We grew up together, and we used to play hockey and swim and race our boats on Baldwin Lake. He will be greatly missed.
