Like so many others, I have known Dave most of my life and came to adore and respect Dave as a honest and caring man and knew my car would always receive the best. I just saw Dave on Black Friday and today I called to speak to him about getting my car inspected. I am deeply saddened and know that I have lost a truly valued friend and mechanic. It is such a shame as he did not get to live out his retirement that he so longingly planned for. My prayers and sympathy are with his family at this time but I know that Dave will always be watching after us. Rest in Peace Dave- I will miss you terribly

My condolences to Dave's family. I just learned of his passing this evening and was very shocked! He will be sorely missed by the community. My husband and I took our vehicles to his repair shop for years. He was always honest and a pleasure to deal with. He often talked to me about retiring. I am so saddened he never reached that goal. RIP Dave.

Dave was so honest, helpful and nice. I've been trusting him with my cars since I started working at the Hatboro Post Office. I saw him a few days prior to his passing as his last words were 'Hey Jan, have a Merry Christmas if I don't see you'. I'm so sad of his passing. Just a great all around guy. Rest in Peace Dave, you'll be missed. Prayers to your family.

Dave was truly a great person and he kept my cars running for a long time. He always kept such good people working with him and they were just great. I used to love to sit and talk with him and stopped going there only because I moved too far away. Rest in peace Dave........... Entertainer : Paul Christopher Moschette

A long time customer of Dave's Auto in Hatboro. Dave was truly a great individual and I used to love to sit and talk with him about all sorts of stuff. He kept my cars running for a long time and he always had such nice people working there. I moved far away so was unable to be back for car services. Rest in peace you fine man.

We are so saddened to hear of Dave's passing. Being a fellow street rodder and car nut we always had
something to talk about. Our whole family took our cars to DAVE'S AUTO REPAIR for everything. You could
count on him for a fair and honest job. The last few years we would discuss retiring and enjoying some "fruits of
his labor" So sorry that did not happen for Dave. Our condolences to the family as we know you will miss him
even more than us.

I didn't know Dave well but I have taken my car to him for years and I'm so sad to hear of his passing. He was an honest, hard working man. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Rest In Peace Dave

John and Janet McGinness--To say! I was shocked at reading of Daves passing is an under statement.
He was a friend for over 40 years--I first met Dave when he came home from the army--he was still in uniform.
Myself, being a Viet Nam Vet --we shared some memories both good and bad. He was truly proud of his service and never complained.
My last meeting - was 2 weeks ago ,when he gave me advice on my buying a new auto.He always had time for a friend.
All he talked about was retiring and moving up state.
He will be greatly and endearly missed --Dave was one of the most honest and caring people I ever met.

Dave-- you will be remembered and sadly missed!

So shocked and saddened to hear this news. I’ve known Dave most of my life as he has been my Mechanic and friend since I began driving. Especially enjoyed spending time with Dave at car shows over the last couple of Summers. He was so looking forward to his retirement. The man never stopped working. Dave had a Heart of Gold.

I'm very sorry for his family. Every day He made me smile even when I was in the worst mood. He was my favorite customer at 711. I will always remember you and never will forget everything you told me(changed my life)

 Posted December 15, 2016 - 2:41am

Dave had a way of changing the lives for the better of all those he touched. I've known Dave for 40 years and our friendship started when I was a teenaged pump jockey at the Sunoco Station in Willow Grove where he was a mechanic. We both shared a common passion for automobiles that lasted a lifetime. I lost my HOT ROD BUD and his death has hit me very hard. But its not all about me and I sure everyone who knew Dave is grieving equally. I like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to all his family and friends.

This man changed my morning, every morning he used to come into 711 where I worked to get things before going to work. He made me smile everyday even when I was in a bad mood. He will be truly missed. May you rest in peace Dave and I'm very sorry for his family.

I was shocked and saddened when I called your shop today to talk to you. You were the fairest and kindness business person I know. I trusted your opinion and always knew you would do the job right. I recommended you to everyone I knew my son, my mom, neighbors, coworkers and friends. They all loved you and your work. My sympathies to your family. Rest In Peace Dave.

We want your family to know that aside from everyone knowing you were a great guy; you were a class act & always went the extra mile for people. My family, too, feels like we've lost a close family member. We will continue to go to your shop, but I will always have a heavy heart as I come & go. Please know you touch so many lives with your kindness & generosity. Godspeed.
