Grandpa Pontoon loved to fish, hunt and camp with his family and friends. Dave loved to plan his next excursion for his family and friends as much as he loved to be doing them. He always had what seemed to be the right advise for anyone who needed it. His kind heart and warm words will truly be missed. The lists he made and projects he completed will always be remembered and cherished. He loved to play cribbage and had many good one liners. Dave retired from the Department of Corrections after 32 years of service.
