A true character to many former Monmouth College President Bruce Haywood had this to say about Dave, "Curiously, my fondest memory of him is of Dave in his hospital room, setting aside the newspaper to welcome my wife and me as we entered. Ill as he was toward the end, his happy spirit never failed him."
