It just seems Dave was always in pain, but he fought hard over the years to still get around. I know it was tough for him and his family but he really cared about his family. He is now free of that pain and my prayers go to the family. Unfortunately I cannot attend the funeral because my husband has surgery that day.

We are very saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Dave. I have known him at least 45 years and had played sports, cards, and board-game sports with him. Dave was always fun to tease because he gave it back to you. Our deepest condolences to Dave's wife, his brother Dan, and his sisters Darla and Darcy. Our prayers are with you at this time.

I met David less than one year ago, but he quickly became one of my favorite patients. His smile and positive attitude were infectious, and our entire office thought very fondly of him. I will miss him dearly and express my sincerest sympathy to his family.

To the Sabat family,

I was saddened to hear of Dave's passing. He always was a tremendous fan of most sports. I had the pleasure of knowing Dave since junior high and he was a kind, yet fun person to be around. Prayers of peace and comfort for you all. Godspeed Dave! RIP my friend.

Our sincerest sympathy to learn of Dave’s passing. Dave was always ready to greet you with a smile and handshake no matter where you were. His warm smile was infectious, helping to lift ones spirits. His love for the Lord was always an encouragement and he was never ashamed to share his faith with anyone. Even when challenged with health issues his positive attitude and quick wit carried him - and those around him - through those difficult times. He was a source of motivation to those who were down inspire of his own circumstances. We love you and will miss you. Our loss is heaven’s gain! We will be praying for the family in the days and months ahead as we will not be able to attend the funeral.
