    Dave you were a great friend. I will deeply miss our conversations. I do not know of any individual who was more resourceful than you. You shared a ton of industry knowledge and know-how with us leaving a legacy that will continue to work finding creative solutions because you showed us how. You also showed us how to put family first and to make meaningful sacrifices for a greater cause. Thank you for the mustard seed of faith you lived your life by.
    Always your friend,

    You were a joy to be around. Thanks for making my days better every day you were here. God bless your family in your absence. One day, you will be reunited together.

  3. Mitch Reed Says:

    Dave I will always appreciate the grace, truth, and knowledge you shared with me as I was working with you early in my career. Many memorable hours spent in jobsite trailers, grabbing lunch, or just taking a walk around the warehouse where you shared lessons you had learned over the years. Above all else, you always shared stories about the importance of your wife, kids, and grandkids in your life (the grandkids coming up for a week from Texas was always the highlight)! You also always went out of your way to ask about Megan and I. Your friendship will be missed but your impact on my life will always remain.
    Until we meet again,

  4. Duane Tindall Says:

    Dave it was an honor to work with you. I am also thankful for the help and wisdom you gave Christian. It was comforting to know you had taken him under your wing and taught him the way of the construction world. He will use that wisdom the rest of his life.
    My family and I send our sympathy to your family.
    May God comfort your family in this time of loss.

    I would like to give all of you my Condolences He will be missed by a lot of people. I remember the Christmas holidays with the family, at the grandparents’ house. The Wortman’s would always have the Christmas tree on the coffee table and the little plastic Santa and firemen that would carry the chocolate balls. The grandchildren, Chris, Patrick, Bill and I would be so excited to open our gifts. David would be on the sofa with one leg crossed, watching us open each one. He was so happy, even though the kids got most of the gifts. At the time I did not realize what I do now, David lived his life though his children and family, we made him happy, not the gifts. Recently I was lucky enough to introduce my wife, Jennifer to David and Kay. David gave his approval to me, “Jennifer is a great girl, take care of her and your children.” Jennifer and I truly wanted to be there during this time, it’s just not possible for us. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Jim, Jennifer and Maddie Wortman

  7. Michael Morris Says:

    Kay and family-
    Although not with the same company, Dave and I worked together on projects for many, many years. Whenever he had a project he thought we could work together on he’d call me and I did the same for him. Contracts weren’t necessary. Dave’s word and his handshake were worth more than any contract. He was a true friend and a respected colleague. I will miss him terribly. I’ll always remember his sign off from a phone call or meeting- “Michael, you and your family have a great evening.” It always meant a lot to me.
    I am truly sorry for your loss. Dave was one-of-a-kind. The world, and our industry in particular, is much the poorer for having lost him.

    Dear Kay, Chris and family,
    I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. I greatly admired David. I know he will be greatly missed. He loved you all deeply, as we had spoken of some of these things the day he was admitted to the ICU. Please know that I keep you and your whole family in my thoughts and prayers as you transition to a new normal without him. A family emergency prevented me from attending services to be able to speak to you in person. It was an honor to care for him.

    Ellen Balke-Jones, RN, ICU

Leave a Condolence.
