    My heartfelt condolences go out to all the family and friends that knew Dave Calmere. I knew Dave since the late 90s, and we shared a lot of good times! I will truly miss Dave, and I am so saddened on the sudden loss of his life. Dave led a quiet life, but had a kind heart. I’ll always remember the times that we had spent together, and those memories will not be forgotten. May God bring his peace and comfort to all those that are mourning his death. We will, together overcome this. May we support one another during this time of grief

      David, was a wonderful son. He lit up our hearts with his beautiful smile and his tenderness. He loved his family and they loved him and will miss him so much until we are all reunited again. He was proud to be doing the work he did and he had a bond with his fellow officers that he truly enjoyed. We will remember all the good he did and cherish the time we had with him. He was a blessing from God to us. Thanks for all the kind thoughts, David’s family really appreciates it.
