It is so hard to lose a partner and loved one. There is not much I can do to help you. I hope it won’t be long before the current sadness goes and you can remember the happy times together with Dave.

Condolence from Jessica Proud & Lisa Stillwell on July 24th, 2009 12:00 am


As you no doubt know, Jessica and I were office-mates with Dave for a while here at RENCI. We really enjoyed getting to know Dave and working with him. We had great conversations and a lot of laughs at work. I remember on one occasion, Dave unintentionally said something that was kind of a double entendra and when Jessica and I brought it to his attention, he was so embarrassed that he had to leave the office for a few moments. The rest of that day none of us could look at each other without bursting into laughter again. We’ll also miss the conversations we had with him about various other topics including Macs, Quizno’s, Smallville, music, iPhones, and NPR.

Everyone here at work is really missing Dave and extremely saddened by the thought of not having such a great guy around to work with anymore. Dave was a really nice guy and really valuable here. As his manager said to us …

“Those of us who were fortunate enough to know Dave know how much of a loss this is. Dave was one of the most friendly and helpful people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He was, quite literally, the backbone of our bio-group – he was involved on almost every project for the simple reason that he was a great worker and enjoyable to work along side.”

Lisa & Jessica

Condolence from Gail Sutton on July 24th, 2009 12:00 am

We are so sorry Chris,Aaron & Shannon. We are thinking of you. Of course, our thoughts are with Dave’s family also. We know how it it to lose a sibling. Gail & Russ

Condolence from Nassib Nassar on July 24th, 2009 12:00 am

Dear Chris, and to all of Dave’s family: Please accept my sincerest condolences. I worked with Dave at UNC over the past three years or so, and it was a complete pleasure for me. His extraordinary sense of humor always made work enjoyable. Above all, he was a true gentleman. We won’t forget Dave.

Condolence from Sis on July 25th, 2009 12:00 am

As you know, I’m a person with few words, but my Heart is broken as yours is. As always I’m here for you now and forever.

Friends and neighbors have been so grecious bringing food over twice a day and seeing to our every needs. Your Son and all the Family from Michigan can’t say thank them enough.

We’ll miss you very much at Renci.

I enjoyed working with you and it was a pleasure getting to know you.

You are a sweet, gentle friend and a delightful soul.

Thank you, Dave.


Condolence from David & Stacy Meeth on July 25th, 2009 12:00 am

Aunt Christie,

Sorry to hear about Uncle Dave, We will miss him! He was a great guy and fun to be around.

I wish I could be up there, but I am not able to right now.

I’ll pray for you and Arron, keep your spirit up and remember the good times you all had.

I’ll call next week when things wind down a little.

love you always!
David A Meeth

Condolence from Cyndi Taylor on July 26th, 2009 12:00 am

I’m shocked and saddened to hear of your loss. My prayers are with you now and always. May time ease your pain and the memories of good times spent together come back to comfort you.

Condolence from Sherri Midyette on July 26th, 2009 12:00 am

Dave and I were office mates some 20 years ago at IBM. Dave was a good friend. I remember us laughing until we cried, mostly at IBM situations. I gave Dave several job recommendations over the years and we lost touch except for that contact. I was shocked to see Dave’s obituary this morning. I am truly sorry to all of Dave’s family for your loss. Chris and Aaron, I know he loved you very much.

Condolence from Cathy Hamilton on July 31st, 2009 12:00 am


Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown
Chris, my heart goes out to you and your Son and Daughter in law.
always your friend

Condolence from Susan Coville on August 2nd, 2009 12:00 am

Dear Chris, I am so saddened to hear of Dave’s passing. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you, Aaron and the rest of the family and friends who knew and loved him. There is never anything one can say to comfort such a great loss, but may it help you to know that you shared so many wonderful years and memories together during his lifetime. Please keep in touch.
Best wishes,
Susan Coville

Condolence from Jeffrey Bowman on August 4th, 2009 12:00 am

Dave and I always addressed each other as ‘BRO’ seldom by our names.One could hear the pride – Not only a brother, but a friend
I relied on him to help me see the folly in every serious situation without being condescending even when it was evident I was being silly
He always took the time to say hello, even when he was busy
We’d compare the weather- Always wished each other “a great day” or weekend, or “good luck” and “have fun, be safe”
always said “I love you”
