I am so very sorry to hear of Dave's passing. I met Dave during my time working at Unified Fire Authority. I always made sure to have a spot reserved for him at our board meetings and he was always a pleasure to work with. Although my time with UFA was cut short due to health reasons, Dave reached out through Facebook and I was happy that we could stay in touch. I will always remember his kindness, humor and smile. My sincerest condolences to his family. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to know him.

I will always appreciate the great and important work Dave did on behalf of the Humane Society of Utah and animals throughout our state. He carried the torch for the HSU at the capitol and I have immense respect for the way he battled on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves and cannot protect themselves. He'll always be welcome on the other side of Rainbow Bridge.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked for the Humane Society for years and enjoyed seeing Dave around during the stressful legislative season. Although I do not work there anymore, he called me a couple of times (by accident) and it was always good to hear him laugh, even if it was at himself! I will miss him!

Dave will be greatly missed on the Hill. He was always so nice to me. He also was very kind and nice to my Father when he was serving in the Senate. Dave was friends with everyone and everyone loved being around him. I am sure that family will miss him greatly. I am sure he and my Father will be standing around and talking about legislative issues and also taking a quick fast stroll to enjoy the view. They both will be loving that. Sending my condolences and gratitude that I was able to know Dave. I am a better person because I knew Dave Nicponski!

I am so sorry for your sudden loss. Dave was an inspiration to me. He demonstrated to me and every on around him, what can be accomplished, when people look at the positive rather than the negative aspects of any situation. He accomplished so much in life, overcoming tremendous obstacles. I am fortunate to have known him!!!

There are no words sufficient to express my sadness at the passing of Dave. It was and always will be a major shock. I loved this man. He has been an ever present friend and confidant. Geri, I know there are no words that will provide comfort. Dave loved you and your children. And that love extends through eternity.
