Dave was one of my most favorite cousins. I loved him as an older brother. And had alot of respect for him. I drove dump truck for him for 14 years, on weekends and on my vacations from CDOT. I really do miss him, and it is hard to believe that he is gone. Ill see you again some day Dave. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE. I love you dearly my big brother.

We all knew Dave for years. He was always a kind and thoughtful man. As our county grew we saw less and less of him but he always asked about my mother Pat. He will be greatly missed. I am very sorry for your loss.

Dave was a very good friend. We are so saddened by his passing, although we know he is in a better place. Our thoughts and prayers are with Dorothy and all of Dave's family at this time.

It was with deep sadness that we learned of Dave's passing. We both have fond memories of Dave during the years he worked with the Sheriff's Department. He was a great supporter of Huck and the department. When Jo when on the road as the first female deputy in Grand County, Dave was fully behind her and encouraged her every step of the way. He was a fine gentlemen and a genuinely nice person. Our hearts go out to you at this most difficult time. Jim & Jo Borowski
