My heart goes out to Dave's co-workers at Raley's who are really feeling his loss. And to the customers too. I was one of them. Dave always put the most positive complexion on my trips to the supermarket. Like so many others, I will miss him, and truly appreciate the time he spent, and the effort he made, to create a pleasant shopping experience for people. I wish everyone took their jobs so seriously.

So sad to hear about this. Dave was an exceptional person and always so kind to me and my kids when we saw him Raley's. His desire to serve others was evident. Praying peace over his family and friends tonight.

So sorry to all grieving. I'm also so awfully sad to read that Dave has passed. He brightened up the day for Raley's customers like me. He always seemed to be enjoying his work and his spirit was very uplifting to all around him. Sincere condolences to all. There's a bright light in heaven.
