Memories Timeline


  1. I adored the man I first met in 1999, he became a part of the Adams clan in 1997…. He was one of the most decent of men. He loved Aunt Valerie so much…. you could see it… you could hear it when he talked to her…. and you could feel it whenever you saw them together. Even though I had only known him and Aunt Valerie for 4 years when my husband passed, they stepped up, and stepped in to be there for me. I only hope I can do the same for Aunt Valerie. He will be greatly missed, and always greatly loved. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time of such great loss! We love you both Aunt Valerie —- Mary Pat, and Cody.

  2. I loved David’s pride in each of you. His admiration for his family was one of the things I loved most. He died knowing how very much he is loved ❤️ i’m sorry I cannot be there to pay my respects.

  3. I already am missing you. I will always remember when we were kids we went to the sock hops because we loved to dance. Thank you for those memories, I will always remember them. Rest In Peace in the hands of God. I will always love you. Judy

    I remember the time we played golf at City Park? I tried but you were the better golfer. We had a great time. Rest In Peace my brother. Jim

  4. You were the best big brother a girl could ever have. You took me to the sock hop because we both liked to dance. I will cherish our last week together for the rest of my life. Valerie will always be my sister and I will always love her. May God hold you and your family in the palm of His Hands. Until we can dance again in Heaven I love you. Judy..

    I remember our playing golf and having a great time. You was the better golfer. Rest In Peace my friend and brother. Jim.

  5. Valerie and family…….I am so saddened to hear that David passed…..I will always remember him, and he always greeted me with a smile, was always kind, I loved coming over to talk with you both when we were neighbors…..May the Angels comfort your family, and hold you in their arms of love…..

    Blessings, love and comfort to your family….

  6. Our condolences to Valerie and the whole family. My father worked with Dave when I was a little kid. Dave always treated us like family. Our family moved from Pueblo to Montrose in the late 90s but the family friendship never went away. I can always remember Dave calling and checking in on my dad. We would stop by to visit Dave and Valerie on our visits to Pueblo from time to time and the visits were always filled with laughter and stories. Memories we will cherish forever.

    When I moved back to Pueblo for college I would always run into Dave and Valerie somewhere in town and it was never a short visit. I can remember when I ran into Dave and Valerie at the Black Eyed Pea and introduced my future wife to them and we talked for a while. After a while, Dave leaned over and whispered “She’s a good one, don’t let her go”.

    It’s been a pleasure to have known and experienced Dave’s loving heart. Till we meet again.

  7. David (Papa) was a kind and loving man. He and Valerie cared for our daughter as a grandparent. David loved time with the girls and helping Valerie. He was a brother in the Lord and we enjoyed our discussions about faith and life. He was a wonderful friend to us and we will miss him dearly!!!
    Forever in our hearts and prayers. Rest In Peace Papa. Till we meet again.
    Gerald, Karla, and Erika

  8. Our thoughts and prayers to you and your family. David was a kind and loving person. We will miss his gentle smiles and his eyes being aware of what was happening around friends and family. Maybe no comment but a slight smile and his eyes would twinkle.

  9. Love and prayers to our dear family. We love you all so much and are here for you always. Love the Colby, Anderson and Vigil family’s

  10. Alonzo and I feel blessed and honored to have the privilege of knowing Dave. Alonzo and Dave were Co-workers for Colorado Dirt in the early 80’s. Dave was his friend, mentor and most important role, family! Even though his heart had some medical issues; God blessed him with the biggest and kindest heart . He treated his family and friends as his greatest treasures. May he Rest In Peace and May God bless his family with peace and comfort.

  11. Rest In Peace David. You were a wonderful husband, Father and grand father. You will be missed

  12. Dave Hockman was an honorable family man. Dave and Valerie have been lifetime family friends and have watched my brother and I grow up. Over the years I have ran into Dave and Valerie out and about in Pueblo. My most recent memory was shopping in Walmart and running into Valerie. After visiting for awhile she asked if I had seen her husband because she lost Dave. She left in her cart searching for Dave. A few minutes later I found Dave riding his cart. Again , we greeted each other and visited for a few minutes. I told him your wife is looking for you. He replied I’ve been searching for her too! I don’t see that well and I’ve lost her. I sent him where I had last seen Valerie. It’s funny that they almost said the exact same thing and were both traveling in the same isle in the same direction. We are going to miss this quiet smiling family man.

  13. Again my condolences to Valerie and to the rest of David’s loved ones. I’ve known him a long time. He was always friendly kind and pleasant. I always felt comfortable around him. It was apparent that he loved his family. A hard working man who knew how to get things done. He was a good loving husband father and grandfather. I’m sure he has gone to Heaven where he will continue to watch his loved ones. REST IN PEACE DAVID.

  14. I know i have only met you once when i got to hang out with kaely and ashley. My prayers are with you and your family. May you rest in peace.

  15. Dave and I are so sorry for your loss. Our thought and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

  16. David ;
    I knew you for a long time and have always thought of you as family. We are so glad we got to see you recently! God bless you!

    • We are love you all, Dave was such an amazing man, he has been like a father and grandfather to us. RIP Dave, you will be greatly missed.
