Re: “Obituary: Dave “Big D” Fayette, 1945-2016

My sisters and I were raised at Marble Island by Dave, Fred, Karen and the Fayette clan, with a whole swim team of other kids. I cant express the sorrow in our hearts. Just about every day my father and Dave strategized their stock market positions betting who had the better ones. I remember his taped shoes and the clubs! I remember his smiling, intense and inspirational discussions that made you think and want to do better. He was a courageous man as well. I remember a story; one winter day he was skating around Marble Island. Moses (his rabbit loving dog) was running around the Island but got too close to the island where the ice was thin and Moses fell through. It was the backside of the island, out of site from the club. Moses panicked and was breaking the ice trying to climb out. Dave yelled at him to be still and the dog stopped. Dave laid on his stomach, crawled to edge, grabbed Moses by the collar and pulled. Moses was able to get his front paws up on the ice and with Daves help he climbed out. Lord knows what could have happened to Dave if he broke through as well. That was Dave The hooks, I could go on about those. Being a gullible teenager I was easy prey! From those years at Marble Island there are scores of families that owe Dave (and the Fayettes) for an immeasurable quality of life you couldnt find anywhere. Dave taught us how we should treat each other and all of us kids, then, adults now, took that with us. Truly a life well lived.
