Dave was truly a wonderful person who had a hugely positive impact on everyone he encountered. The care and dedication he gave to all of the Junior Trojans throughout very many years of service will always be remembered. With Dave the football was important but the other things, character, school work, discipline, and so much more was the prerequisite for all of the football success. Dave, we want to thank you, and your family for everything you have offered all of us. Rest in the peace of Christ forever. Your legacy will be a challenge for all of us to aspire too.

My condolences to the Wescott family. Dave was a colleague and mentor of mine while we worked at the Merc. Dave was always calm and rational even during a fast market on an employment Friday. I will always appreciate his friendship and advice.
