Condolence from Larry Roskos on July 25th, 2015 12:20 pm

Dear Molly and all the Hennigan family:
I was surprised and saddened to learn of Dave’s passing. Dave was a uniquely pleasant individual whose acquaintance I was privileged to make when I served on Lancaster City Council. He became a neighbor, a fellow bowler at the Hamilton Club and a friend. Dave was just a delight to meet and see around town and a pleasure as a verbal sparring partner. He will be missed. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Larry Roskos
