I am saddened by this news. David was a good friend of mine growing up on Granite Trail. My condolences to the family and all our friends. I know Dave loved music – quoting Pink Floyd, ‘Wish you were here’. Godspeed brother.

To the Epley Family I am sad to hear David passed. David was one of the best friends anyone could ask for always there for everyone around him to offer anything he could. He was an all around great man and always looking to have a good time! We lost a great Friend and gained an awesome Angel. I love you…
