    I was a classmate of Dave’s in high school. He was the last boy I went steady with before I headed off to college. I’ve always remembered the Schatz family with great fondness. Dave’s sister, Pat, became a dear friend also in high school through our church Luther League. My deepest sympathy to the family.
