He is survived by his wife Roberta, and their family, Dan Engebretsen and his wife Debbie who reside in Maryland with their two children Ashton and Kendra; Debbie Nubile and her husband Rick, living in Tacoma with their son, Samuel; Darrell and Jamie Croteau and their children, Joshua and his wife Jeni residing in Ft.

While we know that Dave is enjoying the wonder of Heaven, it is difficult to say “good-bye” to this warm, gentle, and kind man, who not only served his God, family and country, but was an encourager, giving quiet strength through the years. His service to country spanned twenty-three years, three in the Navy as a Midshipman at Pensacola, FL, and twenty as a Chaplain with the US Army, serving at Camp Desert Rock, NV, Snelling Air Force Base in Minneapolis, MN, two tours in Korea, France, Ft.
