Remembering Dave, by Lynda Walsh…

Dave Brown joined the Jaycees in 1985. He’s remained true to the Chapter ever since. He’s run many of our projects over the years, but his Chairmanship of the Haunted House was one of his proudest projects.

He certainly loved the concerts on the common series and chaired that project as well. One of his latest projects was to order and install new Jaycee Signs around town. He also held many board positions.

Over the years Dave gained many friends within the chapter and if you were lucky enough to call him friend, you were blessed.

He enjoyed sharing time with so many of us on different levels. Maybe you went on one of his camping / hiking excursions, maybe you went to a concert with him, maybe you joined the team at trivia, or maybe you sat next to him at a meeting.

You can be sure you enjoyed his company, always with a smile on his face and a thought to share about an idea for a new project or bringing an older project back.

Dave, as many of us, took his skills gained from the Jaycees and became involved with town government for many years, helping on the Zoning board.

Dave was a true Jaycee in every sense of the word and believed that service to humanity is the best work of life. In 1994 he was awarded the Jaycee Keyman award and was also given a Life Member award in 2002.
