Dave was born January 20, 1960, to Morris Hill and Delores (Holmes) Hill-Hornickel. Dave was always open to helping anyone in need, no matter the cost to him. He loved being outdoors and taking care of his trees, flowers and chickens. He enjoyed fishing, hunting and golf when he could. He was proud to talk about the bridges he built. Dave was continually on the move, there was always something to do.
Family was an important part of his life. Dave made sure his family was taken care of by working without complaint. He was a great example of what work ethic takes. He made time to take his family fishing or help with anything needed at the time. He loved giving candy to his grandchildren.
It was easy for Dave to laugh and he always had a smile.
