Loey - I am so sorry to hear about Dave's passing. I hope this memorial helps in the healing of friends and family. Sheri Biglin
Loey, I'm glad you created this Web site for David. It's a wonderful tribute to him. Michele
There were so many things to love about David, but for us it was the way he opened his heart and home to all his friends. His generosity brought a continual flow of joy into our lives and our only regret is that we didn't tap into it more often. Thanks for all the memories David, we will miss you. Love, Ginny & Sam

I humbly submit this verse I wrote. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Loey, the entire family and countless friends. Joann C. Burns and Scott Kratky A Gift of Seeds The loss of someone precious Is the start of something new. You find out things about yourself You never thought you knew. You feel the pain it often brings And the ache that never ceases. But the influence of his life has left a permanent impression. And from these times you’ve spent with him are experiences that hold- a multitude of smiles, a goblet full of tears, and a treasure full of memories. But all his had to give is now planted in our souls. And the strength you found in him a seedling in our hearts to grow. These things are forever ours. Never taken away or lost. And now the ones around us will nurture from this strength embossed. J.C.B.
The website is wonderful. We will surely miss David and his smiles. Bonnie Mackey
We may no longer see David, but he will always be with us in our hearts. He will be missed. Our love and support to Loey and her family. Diane & Frank
I will miss your upbeat smile and all the fun things that we did with the BBC group. You will always be in my thoughts now and in the future. Sue Murrell
no MATTER HOW BAD HE FELT, HE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE FOR A FRIEND. WE WILL MISS HIM, LYNNE AND DON STERBA
Those of us who knew Dad as the leader of the family will always miss him. The lessons that he taught were sometimes hard truths and others were dispensed with love, caring and left you with the confidence to achieve your goal. From my view as an outlaw, I see in all his children the very best of David Ide. Bruce you got the genius,the math brain and also the sense of adventure and fun, which will guide you well in bringing up your beautiful Wendy. Nancy You have the warm heart and caring selflessness with which you share all of your time to help family and friends.All that worrying gave you Dads' stomach. Peter, From your father you inherited a strong sense of right and wrong. A will to tackle anything without so much of a doubt. He gave you his love of the water, and his pride of woodworking. The trait of helping anyone in need of advise. Lynette, I think although Dad probably was the toughest on you, he was so proud of all that you have accomplished. He gave you 'the little kid in him' side. You can always make us laugh (and cry) and we always have fun when you are around The most important value David left to all of his children was the fierce sense of loyalty he has insilled in all of you. You are a great family. Loey, You are the glue that has kept this family together. Thank you for making me a part of it. Collette
Happy Birthday Dad We miss you and love you always. Mom is going to be just fine Love Collette
A big part of our life was spent with David & Loey boating in far and near places. Great fine was had by all. The ceiling light in the salon of Allegro will never see the fun we had (NoTouchDancing)no matter who owns her now. Though Ted and David "locked horns" from time to time, it was good for both of them, and entertainment for us all (haha). You will always be in our hearts and memories. David is home now. We love you, Loey. Ted & Sue
Very nice,Dave reminds me of my own father who just passed on 8 Months ago at the age of 52 from Lung Cancer. I am only 30 and there is so much my father is not going to be able to share with his family. I have a son on the way, he would have been so proud. I am sorry for your entire family. Timothy...
Dad It has been a long ten months since you have been gone.I shouldn't say gone as you are with us all in our thoughts every day. You would be so proud of all your family, everyone has been so caring and helpful to Mom. Lynette has her selling gowns all over the country. And as you would guess Mom is a pro when it comes to dressing people. Nancy and Ginger consult with Mom frequntly on recipies. Bruce has been down several times and brought Lois and Wendy last month. Wendy is taller and more beautiful than last year. Brandy and Peter moved in across the street.(Oh, by the way Mom lent us the down payment to buy Alices' house)It has been wonderful to have them next door. They are in and out of the compound daily. Peter likes to fish and he and David have become best buddies. Brandy loves to chauffer David around and her house has become his hangout. Peter has the docks full and is doing all that he can to take care of maintaining the whole place. Me I am helping Mom get ready for the Christmas Eve Gala and missing you still. Christy called today, so I will say Hello from her and Warren also. I love and miss you Dad.Collette
I never knew him. But now I know of him. This is a unique and far reaching means of spreading a legacy. I found this site by accident. Although in truth there aren't really any accidents. I believe everything happens for a reason. I am moved at the thought of a memorial like this that can reaches thoughout world in an instant. I hope Daves family has found healing.
This evening (March 12, 2005) I was bored, so i went to "google" myself, typed in my name David Ide, and found this website... Obviously I am another David Ide, but after reading through this website, I feel like I knew this man. I'm in my 30's, and I live on the other side of the states........... but this man, David Ide sounds like he touched so many lives when he was alive, and he continues to touch the lives of others - strangers he never met in his life through this imortal website........... It is a warm feeling to share the name of someone who was and still is so loved, and loved so many. My best wishes. From just another someone who shares the same name as David Ide. - david ide.Form Results Inserted Here
