Dave was attracted to Shirley’s laughing eyes and stunning good looks. He gave her his fraternity pin two years later and then he popped the question. Dave, the consummate paper shuffler, attended Wayne State night school on the GI Bill, working part time at Lewis Artist supply, Parks and Rec, owned Thunderbird Day Camp and worked at Wolverine Day Camps. He was also an assistant Principal at McFarland. Shirley taught elementary school and Junior High School in Detroit and Oak Park. Always open to family dinners, their three children gave them 6 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. The secret to their lasting love story, says Dave, “Yes Dear!” Shirley remembers fondly their travels to Israel, Italy and Spain. They are looking forward to getting to know more people at Meer, and love spending much of their time together.
