David was known to most as Captain Dave. He piloted a boat up and down the rainbow river for divers, floaters, friends and family. He would give us interesting stories of the different wildlife and the wonderful springs of the river. Captain Dave made friends up and down the river and on the internet telling of his love for the Rainbow River and his family. He made friends where ever he went.

A celebration of his life will be held on
