After that, he returned to his hometown of Peck, where he raised his family with his first wife of 20 years, Theresa Fowler.

Dave had a passion for elk hunting, and also loved camping, fishing, guns and gun trading. He was a true woodsman and loved to mentor the younger generation on everything outdoors. He always looked forward to hunting camp each year with his family. When not outdoors, Dave loved to watch Western movies with a big bowl of popcorn. He was a kind, loving father, brother and husband, and will be missed by all who knew him.

He was preceded in death by both parents.

Dave is survived by his wife, Patty; sons Dave (Sarah), of Colton, William (Holland), of California, Clinton (Tara), of Lewiston; daughter Jessica Anderson (Matt), of Juliaetta; brothers Alan (Karen), Jim (Vicki), Ken (Lori); sister Cassie Randall (Loren); uncle Mark LaDoux; 10 grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

A service for the family will be held at a later date.
