Dave Field was a sweetheart in High School and it looks like he continued that way his whole life.  I remember spilling an entire cup of pop all oever him after a stop at a drive in.  Rest in Peace.

I have fond memories of time spent together while attending UMD. Especially before dances at Kerby Student Center.
