surrounded by his family July 16, 2019. David had been a member of Chicago

championship football teams. Dave had the distinct honor of having a
football field dedicated in his name, "Wescott Stadium" in Cary, IL. His
philanthropic calling was raising funds for various community youth
organizations, first responders, and veterans. Dave was a friend and an
influence to many. He was a kind, generous person whose shining light
touched many peoples lives. His level of professionalism and wisdom will be
greatly missed, and his legacy will live on through his family and friends.
