Memories Timeline


  1. My sympathy to the Loes family. David was always one of my favorite people. He always brought a smile to my face and made my day. I have great memories as I am sure you do as well.

  2. Jeanne, Cy, John, Mary Kay – our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this time.

  3. Our deepest feelings go out to all of you. I was shocked to her of his passing. He was so kind and always caring, but more then that his was always loving…. no matter what. I am sorry for the loss, but Alta Vista lost more then that….and that will say alot…..he was someone whom you will always remember in time. I loved him for what he was. To the family, my love for David always gave more love to you then he could hold in. He loved life and life loved him. So sorry but he will be REMEMERED!!!!

  4. I’m sorry to hear of David’s death. I recall years ago David sometimes coming along with his mom “the Avon lady” to our house. He was at St. Williams the years me and my twin sister were there.

  5. My husband and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved David. We would like to share with you something that has brought us much comfort at a similar time in our lives. John 11:14-44 shares with us the experience of Jesus resurrecting Lazarus here on earth before the very eyes of those he loved. We can only imagine the tears of joy when we too are reunited with our dear loved ones. (John 5:28,29) David will surely be missed by many of those who’s lives he shared, remember the experiences you shared together and learn from them, hold them close to your heart and cherish them. May you find comfort from those who surround you at this very difficult time. Our sincere condolences to all of you

  6. My name is Billie and I used to work in the kitchen at the Care Center. I used to love serving Davey and joking with him. He always brightened my day. I am very sorry for the family’s loss. Rest in peace Davey. You will be missed.
