I am sad to hear about the passing of Dave Dufala. I had the opportunity to work with Dave for many years, and found him a pleasure to work with. This is such a great photo to share, and that's the same smiling face he shared with us at work. He always had a positive attitude and a great work ethic. I'm sure he made many friends along his journey in life.
Please accept my sincere condolences to the Dufala family.
