Tribute from Donnie Nelson
Friend and Business Associate
Dave will always live in our hearts, minds and souls. Everyone who ever worked in the NIAA office considered Dave a member of our staff & family. He connected all of us - the NIAA and the Kukulski families - with compassion, humility and humor. I've never met someone so genuine and caring for the greater good of an organization. Dave traveled Nevada. He understood our differing cultures, attitudes and personalities. He did everything with the objective of making sure every person, school and event was treated equally well. Dave earned respect within our membership. Dave had a special place with me... whatever it was, however it developed or whenever it started, I always felt Dave was special by how he contributed so positively to my life since we first met some 25 years ago. Dave, we'll miss you but always love you.
