Dave loved him some fireworks. I remember the job he would take every 4th of July to truck fireworks interstate. He also loved the newspaper. He probably delivered more newspapers than was humanly possibly when he was Manager for District 43 for The News Tribune.

I had met Dave at various events in Vancouver.....he was always a gentleman and loved to talk about advertising and seemed genuinely interested in my business success as well. He seemed to want to help connect people and seemed to be just a sweet guy. His loved ones must feel so sad in his passing. But I have no doubt that he is very close to them during this hard time and doesn't want anyone to be sad..because Heaven is a beautiful destination. God bless his friends and family.

I first heard about Dave as "that guy who knows everybody".
Several years later he showed extreme patience as he followed my sputtering van over the mountains on the way to Burningman. We shared some great laughs and conversation. He has left us far too soon. Condolences to his family.

Losing your beloved one (David) suddenly has to be one of the most devastating experience for your family. The pain is unbearable when memories of his smiles, laughter and hugs can no longer be seen or felt. Our Heavenly Father "is close to those brokenharted and crushed in spirit" May you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. My condolences goes out to the Burris family.

I will remember Dave as an honest hardworking man. "I am just trying to make a living" he used to say. He was always friendly and caring. He loved to laugh and be with friends. The magic of his presence will be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.
