Dave worked as a custom cabinet maker, carpenter, and home builder, with a specialty in creating reproduction moldings and millwork for Victorian homes and restoring furniture. He built cabinetry for the Cedar Rapids Art Museum, created reproduction entry doors for a storefront in NewBo, built homes in Mt. Vernon and surrounding areas, and designed and built custom furniture for a Spanish restaurant in Scottsdale. Dave’s handiwork is part of many homes throughout the Cedar Rapids area and beyond. He designed Dave’s Blend of coffee and officiated weddings as an ordained minister. Dave spent his life loving Jesus and had a deep understanding of God’s grace and love for us all. He was known for big hugs, his sense of humor, his love of music, the way he welcomed strangers as friends, beautiful woodworking, and adopting people into his family and friend circle. Dave loved good coffee, spicy hot sauce, and aged cheese -- especially if they could be shared with others.
