We will miss our visits with uncle Dave. I particularly enjoyed hearing his stories that only he could tell and the way he told them. Most times over a beer at a few of our favorite places. The stories would most always end with a humorous twist, a smirk and a sip of beer. One of the most humble guys I've ever met. Merry and Kids, Carol & I are so sorry for your loss. We will always cherish our memories/visits with him. On a side note, he was not just a brother in law to my dad, he was a true friend that helped dad through some difficult times after mom passed. he mentioned it often. RIP Uncle Dave. XO and see you on the other side.

My condolences Merry. I spent a lot of time with David when we were kids growing up in the neighborhood. When the Tenaglia clan first moved to West Hyannisport, David lived in Green Dunes with his family. We thought he was rich! David had a great sense of humor and we shared a lot of dirty jokes at Hudson Variety. We played a lot of baseball at the Manor, swam and clammed at 5th Ave, fished off the Centerville Bridge and we explored every creek, cottage and backyard that we could. We also built a lot of go carts which Dave was particularly good at. I haven't spoken to David in 50 years but I remember him fondly. My best to you and your family. Frank Tenaglia

David was a wonderful friend. We shared many laughs on the golf course, mostly at my expense. Alas I was not much competition. It's always difficult when tragedy strikes at such a young age. My thoughts and prayers to Merry, Melanie and the rest of the family.

Merry, I was so sad to hear of Dave's passing. He always had a friendly hello when we ran into each other at the Barney. My deepest condolences.

Merry and family; there are no words of comfort to offer or medicine to take to ease the pain in your loss of Dave. We didn’t know Dave well but in the short time we knew him, he was a kind and gentle soul. Godspeed Dave. May the Angels guide you gently home.
