David and I were planning to meet in Tampa last weekend. He was going to be there flying kites. I learned of his passing the night before we were to meet. The shock of learning of his passing will never leave me. David was always "that guy" who did everything well. Golf, kites, frisbee golf, and CAD to name a few. David did things on CAD that no one else could do. He was a good friend and I will miss him.

I am so sorry to hear of David's passing. I knew David through the Emerson golf league. He was a pleasure to talk to, he talked about his kite flying and disc golf between shots. He will be missed in our league. May God watch over you during this difficult time. Joe Allen
~ Joe Allen - February 9, 2015
Prayers to David's family and friends! I graduated with Dave at Huron and I am very sad to hear this news. I hung out quite a bit with Dave and have many great memories! He will be missed.
~ Brett Blodgett - February 9, 2015
David "Vax" was a great man that I was very happy to know. He was well like and respected by our disc golf community. He will surely be missed. All my best to his family and friends at this time of loss.
~ Sean Meier - February 9, 2015
Tanya, I am so sorry to hear of your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time.
~ Kate Conway - February 9, 2015
My Condolences to the family. I met David in the early / mid 90s at Whirlpool. We quickly became friends through work and bowling league. I have not seen Dave in a long time due to the fact that I moved out of the area but will always remember Dave and our friendship fondly.
~ Ben Brotzki - February 9, 2015
Our deepest sympathy to David's family and his wife and step-children. So many in our community where he grew up are thinking of all of you with prayers. Sincerely, Kathy and Tom Kirby and family
~ Kathy Kirby - February 9, 2015
So sorry for your loss. I too knew David from our golf league and being an officer with him. He was always very positive, and looked for ways to improve the league. He is also the only person I knew who flew kites competitively. David will be missed by all.
~ Bob Baird - February 9, 2015
I was so saddened to read of David's passing. Although I haven't seen him for so many years, will always remember our time growing up together in the old neighborhood in Huron. Just wanted all of you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. With sincere sympathy.

Condolences, met David through the golf league and was always a pleasure to be around, he will be missed.
~ Dan Rice - February 9, 2015
I was shocked this morning to hear of David's death. I met David a few years ago through disc golf. I always enjoyed being in his group and listening to his stories of not only disc golf but also kite flying. He will be missed. My condolences to his family. May God be with you.
~ Ken Harbaugh - February 9, 2015
I have known David since the mid 90's, I started working @ Whirlpool Dayton with him. David soon became a good friend. David & I started playing golf together in league play and I learned from him. Soon after we started playing in a pool league together, something I looked forward to every week and have been doing it for many years. David was a genuine man, honest and kind. My friend David I will miss you.
~ Bill Tillinghast - February 9, 2015
I've know Dave through work for many years. Always a positive force, always polite and kind, I really enjoyed talking with him. He shared his enthusiasm about kite flying and frisbee golf many times. Fly with the angels, my friend! Deepest condolences to the family....
~ Mary Ubach - February 9, 2015
I'm so sorry to hear this! David , lived in my neighborhood in Huron. We use to hang out together, and graduated high school together. David was a very quiet, shy back then. Haven't seen him in years and we reconnected on FB. He loved flying kites! I will be praying for your Family for strength, comfort, and peace. Sad to loose afriend, son, husband, step father, so young. Cherish the memories.
~ Carolyn Putnam - February 9, 2015
Just a old friend from High school never kept in touch but it is always hard to hear when someone you knew passes my God bless and help his family through these hard times
~ Dan Semrau - February 9, 2015
I will always remember the sunny day we shared at Edgewater park flying kites. David made his own Quad kite and it was a beautiful work of lattice and color. May gentle winds guide him forevermore.
~ Jason Ridgel - February 8, 2015
Please accept my condolences on the loss of David. Having worked with him in the Emerson Climate Golf League for many years as a fellow officer I will miss him. I'll share one night that I played against him. On the first tee his shot ended at the 150 yard marker.......his clubhead ended at the ladies tee. The club had broken and he ran up and got a demo driver from the clubhouse. On the seventh hole his tee shot was 75 yards from the green. Everyone else in the foursome had already hit twice and were still farther out than David. Finally on the ninth tee box (South Course at Shelby Oaks) David addressed the ball and backed away. He did this several times. Finally Bud Deland told him to just go for it. He did and cleared the water down by the drainage ditch. Awesome tee shot. David will be missed.
~ Jim Cole - February 8, 2015
Please accept my deepest condolences. I knew "Kovacs" through the Emerson golf league. He was always one of the best guys out there, but was never arrogant about it. He pretty much ran the league for the past 5 years with the daily communication and weekly golf tips. David was the guy that would always have the answers to any rules question, or any other question for that matter. We will miss the "Kovacs" rules and miss the weekly jabs about good and bad shots. The league will not be the same without him.
~ Mike Monnin - February 8, 2015
To Tanya and Kovacs family --- While you go through this painful goodbye, I hope that the good times and great memories you shared with David bring you the strength to overcome the sadness and bring smile on your face.
Tanya, please don't hesitate to reach out to your friends. See you Monday. Take care.
~ Ruby Bernardo-Horner - February 8, 2015
I met David in 1997 as he was a young engineer and we started playing in a pool league. He was always the first one to go to with any question as you just knew he had an answer. David mastered anything he threw himself into, darts, kiting, pool, taking junk train sets and making them wonderful working machines again are just a few. He will be sorely missed and I am privileged to have know him for such a short time. God bless all the family.
~ John Hess - February 7, 2015
Please accept my deepest condolences. No words can summarize this tremendous loss. Dave was such a great man and was truly cherished by all of his fraternity brothers at BGSU. It was an honor and a privilege to call Dave my brother. And in my 20+ years since leaving the walls of Sig Ep, its hard to think of anyone as kind, easy-going and genuinely caring as Dave. He would do anything for you and never expect a thing in return. He would just be smiling away and happy to be part of the action.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Dave will be greatly missed.

We are terribly saddened by the new of this sudden passing of another member of our kite family. Dave was a fun, kind, caring and thoughtful person and will be missed terribly. Our condolences go out to Tanya and his entire family and everyone that knew and loved him. We will miss "Dave from Dayton" very much. Comfort to all that are grieving. May he rest in peace.
~ Kathy Brinnehl - February 7, 2015
"Dave from Dayton" taught me several kite tricks several years ago at a kite fly in Muncie, IN. I will always remember his patience and calm demeanor and his always greeting us at kite events across the Midwest. He will be missed and our thoughts will be with his family.

He held Washington with his brute strength long enough so I could take a picture of him & d monument; filed n Time.
He took me to d park where n awe I watched him skillfully drew lines nd arcs n d sky. I looked at him nd dat boyish smile captured d afternoon.
He took me to d Air Force museum, cause he knew I loved planes just as much as he loved his kites. I promised there will a second time. David...it's just too early...
However...no one can deprive you of your celestial wings, but we envy the angels flying with you. Dat boyish smile now pervades d wild blue yonder... CHEERS! Uncle Joselito & Viol

The world has lost one of the good ones. I am so sad to hear of David's passing. David and I dated throughout my college year's at BGSU, he was my best friend during that time and I can't imagine those college years without him. So many fun memories. You will be missed.
~ Carrie Bischoff - February 7, 2015
Dave will be greatly missed. Spent 4 wonderful years with Dave at BGSU, from the time we pledged SigEp through graduation. This past summer we reconnected, while much had changed in our lives, the friendship, Dave's easy going personality and his wry sense of humor were the same.
HFF, my brother

TUCKED AWAY in our subconscious minds is an idyllic vision in which we see ourselves on a long journey that spans an entire continent. We’re traveling by train and, from the windows, we drink in the passing scenes of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at crossings, of cattle grazing in distant pastures, of smoke pouring from power plants, of row upon row upon row of cotton and corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of city skylines and village halls.
But uppermost in our conscious minds is our final destination–for at a certain hour and on a given day, our train will finally pull into the Station with bells ringing, flags waving, and bands playing. And once that day comes, so many wonderful dreams will come true. So restlessly, we pace the aisles and count the miles, peering ahead, waiting, waiting, waiting for the Station.
“Yes, when we reach the Station, that will be it!” we promise ourselves. “When we’re eighteen. . . win that promotion. . . put the last kid through college. . . buy that 450SL Mercedes-Benz. . . have a nest egg for retirement!” From that day on we will all live happily ever after.
Sooner or later, however, we must realize there is no Station in this life, no one earthly place to arrive at once and for all. The journey is the joy. The Station is an illusion–it constantly outdistances us. Yesterday’s a memory, tomorrow’s a dream. Yesterday belongs to a history, tomorrow belongs to God. Yesterday’s a fading sunset, tomorrow’s a faint sunrise. Only today is there light enough to love and live.
So, gently close the door on yesterday and throw the key away. It isn’t the burdens of today that drive men mad, but rather the regret over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who would rob us of today.
“Relish the moment” is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24, “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. Instead, swim more rivers, climb more mountains, kiss more babies, count more stars. Laugh more and cry less. Go barefoot oftener. Eat more ice cream. Ride more merry-go-rounds. Watch more sunsets. Life must be lived as we go along. The Station will come soon enough.

Sending you prayers and peace in this tragic time Tanya. He was a great man who showed you the love and the light he held in his heart. May you be comforted in the knowledge that you will all be reunited again. Deepest condolences my friend.
