One Condolence for “DAVE ‘Dirty Dave’ ANDERSON”

    Fond memories of this lovely man. I knew him “back in the day” as a very fun and wild man with a kind heart and a great laugh. We enjoyed a lot of parties and laughs in those days – but Dave also gave great advice. By the light of the backyard fires at Dave & Jude’s I made decisions and choices that helped me on my path- thanks for the wisdom, Dave ❤️Cheers
    I’m glad to see all the lives and love he was surrounded by.
