  1. Sending prayers to the family of Dave Leeders. He will be missed by many. I will always think of him when I come to the campgrounds. He always had time to chat with everyone. 💓

  2. Your grandchildren and mine Kieran and Teagan Have told me how much fun they had with Dave at the lake
    You were a fun grandpa and they will hold those memories dear to their heart
    Prayerful thoughts to Regina And all the family and friends who will miss you dearly.


  3. My Dear Friend Dave I am going to miss you terribly, what a great friend you have been to me these past years.
    My favorite memories of you are sitting around the campfire listening to your music selections, you got some great taste in tunes my friend 🎶. Coving out at Wilbus Cove trying to cool off on some of those unbearably hot days 🥵. Hanging out at the parking lot party listening to the band where the drinks are cheaper 💰. Driving around on the golf carts and next thing you know 1/2 the campground has joined in, those are the best times. Every morning you would be found tinkering with something or be gone playing golf. In the afternoons you could be found on the dock sitting on your boat watching all the boats coming and going and if I’m not mistaken the boat watching was really a cover up for watching other things as well 😂. Always willing to help us out with any projects we had going on.

    I’m going to miss you my friend and if you can please be sure Reggie continues to stay at the campground, we need her!!!
    Until we meet again MUCH LOVE BUDDY ❤️❤️❤️
