In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, please honor his life and his love for the great outdoors, which he shared with his children, scouts, and church youth, a fund is being established to help provide adventure trips for less fortunate children . These adventure trips will be led by Dave’s youngest son, Mark, and his outfitter company in Southern Illinois, White Crane Canoe Rentals and Guide Service . Donations to the fund are welcome and greatly appreciated. A scholarship application for groups will posted online after the family has had an opportunity. Funds will go towards paying staff during group tours, a new canoe trailer, purchasing badly needed metal roof for our shop, and other expenses that come up during the year that our small outfitter can not afford.
