So sorry to learn of Dave's passing. He probably would not remember me but I remember him. I have many nice memories of my first South Dakota pheasant hunt and it was with Dave. I wish he and his family peace.

He was a one of a kind person. A true individual. A true sportsmen and friend. He will be missed but not forgotten. Hats off to Dave. Sorry for your loss!

There are so many memories that I have of Dave throughout my life. So many wet willies during my childhood, and tickling me until I thought I would pee my pants. Even as my sister and I got older, he would harass us as the "Presla-conna-shak-ling" girls. He would wait outside school for us to come out and have some odd job of planting trees, mowing, picking up trash, and painting his house so we could make a little extra

I met Dave at a few family get togethers with Steve and Sally. I loved to hear about Dave's ADVENTURES..........he always had something to talk about and share. I know this is a tough time for the Family with Sally and Eric losing Steve and now their Brother/Uncle. I love you guys, blessings to you all.

I had only met Dave and the Double K Guide family in 2012. Dave and everyone who knew him sure made me and my friends feel like family. Dave was truly a very special person, his laughter was contagious,his smile never ending, and stories that never seemed to quite, a man of honor,pride, and family values, yes, you had to love the man for who he was. His quote, shoot straight, will always stay with me, for not only in hunting but in life, always, shoot straight. May god be with the family in honoring Dave's life.

Dave is one of a kind and will be truly missed. I don't know where to start with the stories of hanging out with him. Great memories.

Dave Keiser was a friend that I first met in 1990. From the start he was one of the most fun people that I ever hunted with. Over the years that friendship grew and we talked often on the phone. Dave's love for his two kids and his grand children really became obvious the past decade or so.
He was a one of a kind guy and friend that I will never forget and will miss deeply.
