Dave retired after many years from Johnson's Catering Trucks. He loved gardening, particularly tending to his tomato plants because to him, there was nothing better than an old fashion tomato sandwhich. He was known by many names, David, Dave, Uncle Dickie, Uncle Frankie and Uncle Dick depending on who was talking to him. No matter what you called him, the one thing everyone could agree upon was that he was a fun loving man who adored his family and enjoyed spending time with them, especially at family reunions.
