He was also involved in commercial real estate and advertising specialties. Dave had the ultimate outgoing personality and spent his life enjoying and entertaining his family, friends, customers and acquaintances to the maximum of his ability. He was always athletic and, after a successful high school football career, enjoyed many years of activity on the golf course. He had a noted reputation as an organizer and host of many successful social events. Next to his immediate family and close business acquaintances, Dave had the special ability of maintaining active friendships with people for his entire life.
Dave is survived by his wife, Sara Toombs Krutsinger, Springfield; and his son, Brad Krutsinger, Denver, Colo.; a special aunt and uncle, Joyce and Leon Krutsinger; and numerous cousins.
