What a great friend and a good man. The things he did for others are immeasurable. His contributions to our community through his business, contributions, government service and volunteer activities will be remembered and cherished forever.

As a friend their are memories I will never forget. At one of the early Colts game the Xtra point went ride and hit Furb right in the hands making it impossible for him to hang on to. Always fun with Furb, I will miss him and think of him often.

My deepest sympathy to you all for your great loss. I served an apprenticeship
with Dave at Ball Brothers Mold Shop and spent many years working with him
after that. When the shop closed I eventually went to Chrysler in Kokomo, IN.
Over the years I would see him on his route stopping for gas and we would talk. He was one of the people in this world that I could call a friend. I will sorely miss him.
God bless in this time of loss.
