|I'm so sorry for your loss. I went to high school with Dave. I can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it was to know him. We used to hang out at the old DQ and the Walled Lake Big Boy, Dave was an absolute riot. I have nothing but fond memories of him, he was always the gentleman. May God bless and keep the family in your time of grief. God Bless, Matt.|
|You have been a brother to Ronald. It seems that only the good die young. You have made so many great memories for so many. Man Mountain. I thought you indestructible. I will miss your raucous laugh and wry smile. You one of the good ones. I sincerely hope the Almighty has a plan for thee. Ron and I will miss you terribly & will never forget your kind ever smiling face. Much Love, Ronald & Rebecca Saylor. |

|My heart felt sorrow to the Spencer family, I went to H.S. with David, he is a "TRUE INSPIRATION" May he "REST IN PEACE"|
|Please except my sincere sympathies on the loss of your husband, father, son, brother and friend. Dave and I were good friends when I was a teenager and I watched him grow his business in the Walled Lake Area. He was always such a kind and thoughtful person with a great smile, and big heart.
I wish all of you peace at this time of great loss.

|Laurie, my thoughts and prayers are with you! I never met Dave, but feel like I knew him from all our conversations in the salon. Sending hugs to you my dear friend. |
|My sincerest sympathy goes out to Dave's family and friends. I have done business with Dave and his company for over fifteen years as a distributor rep and will always carry fond memories of my dealings with him. God bless. |
|It is sad that we had to loose a good man to a tragic accident. Dave was full of Love and Life. He will be dearly mised.|
|I remember meeting Dave when I was a freshman at W.L.W....I was nervous to be starting high school and there was Dave....a muscle-bound senior with a brilliant smile and the heart of a gentleman. He always took the time to make sure my day was going well and to let me know that I could always count on him. Years would pass and Dave and I would catch up with each other from time to time and he would always make me laugh. Dave was a born protector to those that he cared about and was close to. I truly hope that his wife and daughters find comfort in knowing that he will be looking down from heaven and continue to be their guardian angel and protector. |
|Laurie and family - I am so sorry to hear about David. I know from our many years of chatting in the salon that you loved and adored him as a husband and father. I will pray for you and your family.|
I am so sorry for your loss. I wish there is something I could do or say to make you feel better.
Death leaves a heartache that no one can heal.
Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love and never want to lose.
May God comfort you and your family.|
|Dave was a good friend from my WLW days and a well respected business man in the Commerce area. Sincere condolences to his family...I know he was loved by many and will be greatly missed.|

|It will be the little things that you remember, the quiet moments, the smiles and laughter.
And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again.
May the love of family and friends help lift and guide you through this time of pain and sorrow.
Gone but not forgotten.
My deepest condolences to all... Peace and grace
I am so very sorry for your tragic loss. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.|
|To the entire Spencer Family, I want to express my sincere condolences to you all. I am deeply saddened by this and I can only hope the best for you all. God be with you! |
|Daves - I am tearing up as i write this, as i remember our times at WLW, the football games, our track practices with Fundukian, your amazingly kind and gentle ways at the time for a young teenager. You always seemed to have time for everyone that knew you, or wanted to talk, you were blessed by God with a ability to touch people in some special way and continued to do so into our adult lives. I offer my sincere condolences to all of Daves family members, and everyone who ever met Dave knows, God has added another angel in Heaven. Your parents raised a fine man, that will always be cherished by many!!!|
|I have known Dave since before high school when I met him through his brother Ed. Dave was always there when you needed him. He had a heart as big as the size of his chest and a smile that lit up the world. My sincere and heartfelt condolences go out to his wife and children. The world has truly lost one of it's special people. His tragic, untimely passing will leave a huge void in the hearts of many. |
|Dear Laurie and family, we are so sorry to hear about David passing away. We know that he has been greatly loved and will always continue to be. Throughout the conversations in the salon with Laurie, we know that he was a wonderful and caring man who loved his family very much. We will keep you all in our thoughts and our prayers throughout this difficult time. God bless.|
|Laurie, Dana & entire Spencer family...I can't begin to express my sadness for your sudden loss of Dave. I was up north & by the time I heard the news it was too late to make the funeral. I am here for you guys for whatever you need. Sending so many hugs & prayers your way! |
Shannon MacIsaac & family

|I'm very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers
|To Uncle Orville, all of my cousins, Laurie, and Tammy, I send my love and prayers, which will last forever. God bless us with having David in our lives. You all know what David meant to me. I will miss him so much. I can't imagine a world without my cous. Please, remember, always, I love him, I'll remember him, and I will always talk about him. Because, when you talk about someone you love, they never die, they continue to live on.
Dear David, sorry it took a while to write you this, but I have been so sad. I know you are at peace now. I know you are with your Mom, Cousin Gloria, Granny, Boyd and other realitives, too. I can only imagine what joy you are feeling right now. I know you are probably fishing up in heaven with Granny and Boyd. At least I see it that way. David, I want to thank you for being the best cousin in the whole wide world, because you are! I want to thank you for all of the wonderful and unselfish things you have done for me and so many others. You never ask anything in return, just always trying to help. I am so proud of you for being an US Army ranger, wow, that took a real tough guy to complete that mission. You are a self made man. Nobody gave you anything. You built a great business through hard work ethics, especially keeping your word! I am proud of you for that, too. You are a great example of what America is all about. You are a wonderful father. You have always loved, provided for and protected your family. Your daughters are very proud of you, too. Don't worry about the girls, they are strong, like their father and will do alright through your memories. Laurie will take care of Dana, you know she will be alright. It is just going to take a lot of time to get through this pain. I tried to speak at you funeral, but it was so hard to say or remember anything. I hated to see Uncle Orville, all my cousins, Laurie, Mike, Tammy and our Canadian friend, Mark so sad, but everyone was. Because, we lost someone very special to us. I can tell you this. There were alot of people there, which tells me you had a lot of friends and were cared about. David, it is okay all the pranks you pulled on me. You see, you got to me before I got you. But, the best was indeed was the bug zapper. OMG! That was a great one, even though it sent 5,000,000 volts through my body, ha ha. Hey, if it made you happy, that's ok, I'll take one for the team. Robbi gave me one after the funeral. Cous, I actually laugh, because I thought of what it meant to me, good times. I have a special place in my home with your memories will be placed along with Aunt Donna, Gloria, Granny and others I have known and still love. David, I could go on and on, but I'll save the other stuff when I meet you again. Just, be waiting for me at the river, ok? I'll be able to find you easily. You will be the big guy with that smile and laughter that I am missing so much now, but will enjoy forever the next time I see you.
I love you, Cous.
|Eddie and to the entire family. It hurt so badly to learn of his passing. I have had to think about what I wanted to say to you. You are a wonderful family and I know you will all need to heal and help each other through this hard time. Be proud of who you are...talk about him often....laugh. LIVE. Thats what you know he would want you to do. I remember those days of sitting in home room and laughing and calling each other cuz. Dave even came to my rescue with a roof problem and took care of a client of mine! Its been so nice to see him through the years. He really was an upstanding man with integrity. He will be missed but not forgotten. |
