  2. I never met anyone as positive as Dave. Never down that I ever saw.. even after night shifts. We all loved Dave.

  3. For a friend....

    The measure of a person, in my book, is the joy and goodwill that person generates in those around them.

    By that measure, David was a giant! I feel honored and blessed to have known him and counted him as a friend. He will be missed!

  4. I worked with Dave for many years. He always had a smile on his face and was a pleasure to work with. My condolences to his family and friends.

  5. What an incredible guy, it has been my pleasure to know Dave and work with him. He was more than a co-worker he was a friend. I will forever miss his smile!

    Liz, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. To the Bodner family and extended family my prayers are with each of you. Psalms 46, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble”. Sometimes we just don’t understand the “whys” and we may not every know, but God will comfort & strengthen each heart day by day, so continue to trust Him. Dave, will be truly missed. He was a kindhearted individual and it showed daily. We cherish each and every memory & moment that God has granted us to have with such a person. Family thank you for time and sacrifices that you have made in allowing your gift to be shared with coworkers & friends. I will leave you with this Psalm 121:1-2 KJV, “I will lift up mine up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth”.

  11. David Bodner
