    I had the pleasure of working down the hall from, David. We had many interesting political conversations when he worked @ GRC. I will miss those fun times. And yes, Dave had a different sense of humor, but I understood him. RIP

    I’m so sorry to the family of Paz. Have had a lot of fun bowling on leagues with him. Loved visiting with him. He introduced me to a vegetable I had never eaten. Thanks Paz for the kohlrabi! I’ll forever think of you when I eat them. RIP my bowling friend.

    My sincerest sympathies to the family. We had the pleasure of growing up with all the Pazderka kids and I remember Dave being just as annoyed with us silly little girls as my brothers were! I know Cindy and Cathy will understand that one. Such a sweet man and even more amazing family. Hugs to you all. RIP Dave.

  • Kevin C Crouch Posted August 12, 2022 3:15 pm

    My Condolences to Paz’s Family. The Red Lincoln and the match books for the 8-track tape player still bring back smiles! I wish I could be in attendance, but life and distance make it difficult. He will be missed!
