Goodbye Uncle Dave, and our utmost sympathies to all your loved ones and friends in Indiana and elsewhere. Be at peace having experienced a long full life of parenthood, hard work, dedication to family and church, and with the comfort of knowing you leave behind a progeny of good people to carry forward your legacy and guided by your ongoing spirit.
May you now be reunited with your beloved wife Peggy and others who have preceded you into the company of God in Heaven.
We pray that time and precious memories will bring comfort to all in your passing.

Jonathan, Vivian, Kaylee and Alyssa Hughes

We will miss seeing Dave sitting on his porch when visiting from Illinois
So glad we got to see and talk to him last time we visited a little while back.
Were hoping to see him on our next trip.
Loved listen to his stories. He was such a gentle man. We’ll miss him .
Condolences to his family. He did have a good life and is reunited with Peggy
