Sorry for your loss. I met Dav a couple of years ago through a mutual friend at the Putnam Price Chopper morning coffee get together. I enjoyed talking about firearms with Dav as it is a pashion that we both shared.
May the Perpetual Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ Shine Upon Dav Forever.

Mrs Davignon and family,

Was very surprised and dismayed to hear of Dav’s passing this weekend.
Used to shoot trap with your husband at Valley Springs and was wondering how he was a couple of weeks ago and very sorry that I didn’t make contact with him.
Had always been amazed at the recall of many stories he told at the club. Also his love of Doowap bands at the casinos and his knowledge of coins and collecting.
Was always amazed at his affinity for golf even with his medical issues.
Please accept my sincerest sympathies on your loss,
Rich Jolda

I am shocked and dismayed to learn of Dav’s passing. He was a great source of amusement and knew way too much trivia. I enjoyed working with Dav for several years at CPW and challenging him to see who could finish the daily cryptoquote first. We had a good time with that and I stil think of him when I do them.
