David Jr. And family:
All of us at B.S.Sales are very sorry to hear of the passing of your father.
I have worked with and known David my entire career. He was always someone I could talk to about our Industry Especially in my younger years when I was young and dumb.
David was always willing to share information about our businesses and our families. He was easy to talk with and always had a smile on his face.
He will be missed.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Dave, you will be missed by all your friends who valued your loyalty and generosity. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family in this sad time. Thanks for everything for many years my friend.
It is hard to believe Dave is gone and he will be missed by his friends who knew him as both kind and generous. Dave always had a smile and a ready laugh for everyone. My best wishes to you Joan and the entire family.
I wish to send my condolences to Joan and the family. Dave’s smile & laugh are my best memories!
Thinking of you Dave Jr., Adri, Layne, Juju and Hoskins family. Your father was a very kind man and I enjoyed the times I got to meet him and talk to him. The last time was a BBQ at your house Dave, along with my folks. Praying for you during this time. Love you guys always.
Maureen and I lost a dear friend this week. The first time we met was a not long after we started our business. He welcomed me and wished me the best of luck saying, there is enough business in this town for everyone. That began a wonderful friendship with Dave, his lovely wife Joan and Dave Jr. Dave was more than willing to guide me through our early years with his insight and knowledge of our customers.Such was his generosity. He took great pleasure of calling me with some news saying ” Steve I scooped you again”.
To Joan, Dave Jr. and family our thoughts and prayers are with you. Dave, Maureen and I miss you greatly and will never forget you.
RIP. Maureen and Steve Anness
Dave was such a character – always exuberant about whatever he was selling. And what a sense of humor – I remember so many occasions where he had us all in stitches. He left a lasting impression on whomever he met. My sympathies go out to all of his family.
Joan and David jr.
Dave will be missed!
He was always a pleasure to be around. Always has a smile, and a great sense of humor.
I always enjoyed my business interaction with Dave but more importantly the friendship that evolved.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I first got to know Dave and David Jr probaby close to 35 years ago. They rep’ed products that we bought, for my employer at that time, Payless Cashways. Dave was one of the nicest people I ever met. In fact he tried to hire me away from Payless Cashways. I changed careers but ran into Dave a few years later. He had not changed at all and we had the best chat. He was still the super friendly Dave. I have thought of him and his family many times over the years and I am so sorry for the family’s loss.
Dave Jr and Family… Sorry to hear of the loss of your father. He was awesome to work with. His recommendation helped me land the job with Steve and Maureen at P&A Sales. Blessings and continued prayers of healing for you and your family.
