I have too many memories to list! All were great! I spent alot of time with the whole family at their home and ours and also at Richland lanes! I remember going to their house and he would be sitting in his chair snacking on his peanuts! He was a great man with a great family and he will be missed! Thinking of you all..

In loving memory of David Branch.

Dave, Karen and his family made a Big impact in my life!!!! ❤ Prayers and Love go out to all of them 🙏❤

Although it's been years since I've seen them, I've always carried them in my heart.....

Dave had my father, as a 5th grade teacher, while attending Richland Elementary in the early 50's.

Dave mentored me during my early years of bowling, and would also pick me up Monday afternoon's to watch Stan Speaker, Dave Majescki, Jack Hawthorne, Joe Santek and He bowl in the Pla-Mor Major League in Kalamazoo. He loved to compete with the Best, in all he did.
Dave was very proud of the GAZETTE Bowling Article which mentioned his top 691 league series at Pla-Mor.

He was a great "Role Model," Teammate & friend.

This news has hit hard 😢😞🎳

Rest in peace my Dear Friend 👼
