Dave and his wife live in North Royalton with their three children. Together the love to vacation in the Carolinas (OBX, Isle of Palms). Aside from family time, Dave enjoys pretty much any sport — including baseball, basketball, soccer, running, bowling and golfing (although he freely admits he won’t help out much in a scramble). He also is a big fan of the Cleveland Indians and Cavs.
