Dave passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on the night of August 3, 2023, in Madison, Alabama. Born in 1956 to Russell and Doris Denzine, Dave grew up in Decatur, Illinois, and lived in several places during his youth.

Dave was a loving husband, father, grandfather, son and brother who will be remembered for his love of food, travel, cars, and flowers. Dave’s devotion to family was evident in his 36-year marriage to his loving wife Karen who was also his devoted travel companion. Their five sons were able to experience more of the world than most youngsters because of Dave’s many family trips and his employment overseas. Dave is survived by his wife, Karen, and his five sons, Jason (Dr. Christina), Daniel (Dr. Kathryn), James, Tyler and Jordan, as well as by his mother Doris, brother Matt, sister Dee Dee, and granddaughter Harper (Daniel and Dr. Kathryn). Preceding him in death was his father, Russell.

       Dave served four years in the US Air Force as a Crew Chief and Aircraft Maintenance Specialist and had a true passion for aviation. Following his military service, Dave graduated from the University of Georgia and then spent over 30 years with the Defense Contract Management Agency. He worked on and managed many professional projects in which he took great pride. These included Pratt and Whitney Jet Engines, Rolls-Royce engines associated with Harrier Jets and F35s, the Marine 1 Presidential Helicopter project, Delta II Rockets, and F35 Fighter Jets. His work led to him being stationed in Indianapolis, Indiana; Bristol, England; London, England; Wiesbaden, Germany; Decatur, Alabama; and Milan, Italy. In his retirement he settled with his wife in Madison, Alabama, though he continued to travel as often as possible. During his time overseas, Dave and Karen took their family on many wonderful adventures throughout Europe.

His family and friends will always remember him fondly, as a reserved, intelligent, and proud person. Even though he was often busy with work, he was generous with his time when his friends and family needed him. His love of travel will forever influence his sons’ perspectives of the world. He was a dependable provider for his family and his legacy will live on through his children and grandchild.

Visitation will be from 3-4 PM at the Legacy Funeral Home in Madison, AL, with services immediately following. A private burial service will take place at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, Georgia.

The video/song included below embodies for his family (especially his sons) many of the  comical memories associated with traveling with Dave.
