  2. Sal says:

    My name is Sal D’Auria and i worked at Indian Point from 1995 to 2011. As an I&C engineer, I interfaced with Dave very frequently.
    He was one of those guys who would always pull my chestnuts out of the fire when something i engineered didn’t go as planned. There were many ‘Daves’ in Maintenance I&C but your Dave was one of my ‘Favorite Daves’. I am very saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. Don Mayer says:

    What a gentleman and highly regarded expert in his field. He was humble about his knowledge but we at Indian Point knew who would be called when there was a difficult I&C issue to solve. My condolences to the family.

    Personable, highly intelligent, decent, humble, affable, and a true expert in his field, Dave was just one of those people who will always stand out as “one of the very best” co-workers and friends. With every interaction between us, I came away a better person. Thank you Dave for leaving your mark on the world: you’ll truly be missed.

  10. Mark Lisewski says:

    Dave was one of the most selfless individuals I have had the honor of knowing in my life. He always strove to do his best under any circumstance regardless of what that may have entailed, even when it would have been easy to despair. He was a role model to myself and many others both on the job and off as well as one of the friendliest people anyone could hope to be associated with. It was my great privilege to have known him and call him my friend. I will miss him. My deepest condolences to his family. Mark Lisewski

  11. Kristin Montanaro says:

    I worked with Dave to 29 years at Indian Point. To find out Dave passed was truly a sad day. I want to remember Dave as the guy who was a friend to all. He always would thank me for doing my job and let me know what I did was important and he appreciated it. He would stop what he was doing run over grab my phone & call Suzanne to play her a song then hang up. He was so proud of all of his kids and told us all what they were doing. He was so excited to be a Grandfather and told us all about his Grandkids. Dave was hardworking, Smart, Funny, Kind, Wise guy all wrapped up in one. Suzanne & the whole Daly family I am so sorry for your loss. Dave was one of a kind & this is a huge loss for all who knew him.

  12. Maureen O'Gara Merz says:

    We were fortunate to know Dave for only the past few years but it was clear he was a great man and a great father, husband and friend to all who knew him. My heart breaks for all of you.

  13. Walter Graff says:

    Dave was one of those exceptional people you meet along “life’s journey.” He was a great guy and co-worker. All of us who knew him are better for knowing him. Smart, witty, and always fun to be around. The world has lost one of the best in the flock. Rest in Peace Dave.
