Dear Lynn, If you get this, please know that you have my love and very deepest sympathy. I am profoundly saddened to learn of Dave’s passing. I have so many wonderful memories of him that just come rushing back. So many of us were very lucky to have him in our lives, personally, politically and on the the golf course at Pets in Kenosha. He was a very good man and a great friend, always kind and compassionate with a quick wit and great laugh. I’m, and everyone he touched, will deeply miss him. Love to you and your family.

I am so grateful for the years of having Dave as a father-in-law. I could not have asked for a more loving and generous person as my father-in-law. I only wish I could have had him longer.

We have many great memories of working for Dave at the Somers Town Hall. He was a great Town Chair and a wonderful man. Our sympathies are sent to Lynn and the family.

I met and worked with Dave through my involvement with Irishfest Lacrosse, which led to the Shamrock club and all other things Irish. Four years ago, I started a golf outing that became a fundraiser for families in crisis and Dave was the first "Volunteer" to get on board. Okay, I recruited him and he agreed. A mutual admiration society evolved through our shared belief system about getting things done: "Lead, Follow or get the Hell out of the way!" I shall miss my friend, fellow conspirator and "git 'er done" partner. God Bless You Dave and thanks for all you did here and what you taught us while doing it.

I met Dave thanks to his mother, Marian, at one of the Sauerkraut Suppers at St. John's United Church of Christ in La Crosse (which she helped run!) And then, when he and Lynn moved to La Crosse, they were like ready-made friends. I learned a lot from him, especially how to face illness bravely.

I had the privilege working with Dave, both as a County Ambassador and as a department head whom reported to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee. He was always engaged, took in the information provided, asked pertinent questions and did so in the fashion of a true gentleman. I will miss him and my thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones in this their time of loss.

I won't forget (and will cherish) visiting Dave when he spent some time in rehabilitation earlier this year at Hillview. I asked him to go over his trajectory of public office and public service, and he spent 45 minutes nonstop giving me the sequence, with much pride and satisfaction -- as it should be. And then his Lynn and his beloved little doggie came by and he was all theirs again! What a heart, what a hero, what a special friend to so many of us on the County Board.

David became a good friend when he ran Forest Hills. After my wife got a hole in one he joked with me for days about how much money I had to spend at the clubhouse. He ended up getting her a beautiful plaque. I always enjoyed his company and his smile. I'm very sorry for your loss.

My sympathies to Lynn and the whole Holtze family as well as all Dave’s friends and colleagues as we grieve his loss. Dave was a great mentor for me on the La Crosse County Board. He was not afraid to share his thoughts on an issue, to help uncover a better solution to a problem, listened and was kind to those who might disagree with his views. But always supportive to others and focused on finding what was good for the people he represented. His many years of public service are to be commended. I will miss him as a colleague and a friend.
