    The one thing that I clearly remember about Dave was that he always had a smile and was very 

cordial to everyone. He was one of the " Good Guys " !!!  Rest in Peace, Dave.

I really wish I had had the courage and composure to speak at the memorial service for David Sellers today, as Jo Lee JoLee Swisher West did. Growing up across the street from David, I knew him all my life. When we were really young, he was the neighborhood "Dennis the Menace" (and sometimes an "Eddie Haskell"). But you couldn't stay mad at him for long, especially when he gave you that grin of his.
Being an only child, he really was the brother I never had. He was always there to give me advice on music, romance and a guy's perspective on things.
We went to separate colleges, but he and another friend of ours, Bill Peoples, frequently came to visit me at Kutztown. The two of them became quite famous (or inFAMOUS) and very popular. Friends I graduated with still ask about David.
We kept in close contact over the years. He always tried to visit me at the shore each summer where, once again, he was a big hit. Each year my friends on LBI want to know when David will be there .
Kathy Byers Sellers, always remember that David made an impact and lasting Impression on a lot of people. He was loved and he will be missed.

Hi Carol, this message is coming from someone whom you have not seen in 54 years since I graduated (barely!) in 1963 from the hallowed halls of HHS.  You played the flute in the Band... and chatted continuously with Nancy Kull... much to John Trainer's constarnation. Meanwhile, back in the French horn section, we talked non-stop, too.

I think your tribute to Dave Sellers was spot on --- even though you didn't actually say those words at Dave's service, many who were unable to attend ARE now seeing those words when they read your fitting comments in the "In Memory" section of the 65' website. Nicely done and nicely said... in your tribute, you re-surfaced many classmate memories about Dave that had been dormant for years.  

In case you are wondering how I got to the '65 website, I am on the Class of 1963 Reunion Committee... and several of our committee members are "friends" on the 1964 and 1965 class websites.  Just happened to see the notice in my email regarding Dave's passing. Although I did not know Dave, I do remember him from seeing him in the halls - yes, the smile is what I most remember!

Thanks for stepping up to the plate and saying good words about your fellow classmate.  You "done good"!

Hope this finds you well.

I was saddened by the news but lazily, did not respond. I then read Carol's message and totally concurred. Carol...you really hit the nail on the head.....Dennis the Menance and Eddie Haskel...how true....ha ha ha. Easy to look back now and laugh.  This coming from another Dennis the Menance. ha ha. 

Regardless of any situations..he was still a classmate and we are all sorry to have him leave so early. And as all said....who could forget that devilsih smile!

Thanks very much for putting such a meaningful twist on this.....
