To the Galati Family:
My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Dave was a great friend through out high school. To this day I still talk to current friends about how Dave use to drag 3-4 guys down the field trying to tackle him or he would just run right over top of them. It was always the funniest thing to watch. We also had many great years wrestling, Dave and I were always 1 weight class apart so we spent many practices seeing who could inflict the most abuse not only in each other but also in the under classmen. A lot of great memories! God bless you Dave...

To the Galati family:

I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. David was a classmate of mine and, even though we have not had any contact in over 30 years, I still remember him well. You see, David is one of those classmates you always remember: he was kind and friendly, and I'm sure you keep hearing this over and over-- everyone remembers his smile. David truly had a good heart. God Bless!

I am so very sorry for your loss. Dave was one of the first people I met when I came to St.Mary's in junior high. He was very kind and thoughtful and was quick to share his smile with others. As a matmaid, I remember watching him running laps inside the school never giving up and smiling the longer he ran encouraging others. God bless you, Dave.

My prayers are with David's family during this time. Gosh over 30 years have past since high school. When you think of David you always think of him having a smile and being so polite. Thank you for raising such a fine young man. I left Sandusky right after high school but I do remember our 4 years together and his name brings a smile to my face. All week he has been in my thoughts and I hope the Galati family can find comfort in knowing how many people David has touched.
