Dave and his wife, Cathy, are expatriate Canadians who moved to the states in ’81 for grad school and never made it home. When their youngest son expressed that he wanted to play hockey, Dave and Cathy decided that they would also begin to play. Cathy had never played before and Dave hadn’t played in more than 35 years. Now they both play multiple times a week, and their son has gone on to play college and junior hockey.
Dave is a graduate of Carleton University in Ottawa and Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He has a private counseling practice in Newtown Square, Pa.
