  1. I met David in 2017 at the CSUP gym. My wife and I looked forward to going to the gym and visiting with the many friends we made. Dave was a mechanic like myself and we would share many stories of are mechanic experiences as well as are life experiences. I became a good friend of Dave’s and I was glad I met him . RIP my friend ✝️

  2. My sincere condolences to you Vincent and Daniel. You were young so you won’t remember me but I lived across the street from you in Regency Park. Your Dad was a very kind and gentle soul. He helped me work on my car when we were neighbors and I used to see him around town – at the University gym, at Barnes and Noble, and the last time was at Safeway in Pueblo West. I always enjoyed visiting with your Dad. He was always interesting and in short was a really good man. I am so saddened by his passing.

  3. With tears I express such heartache over Dave’s tragic passing. Dave and I and his family became very close when his boys were in middle and high school, and then after they left Pueblo. I was not only taken by the incredible guy that Dave was, but I was also impressed with Dave as a Father, an excellent Father. Not only did Dave have a devotion to his health, with the gym and daily runs, and through his continued research, but he was also very devoted to his family. Dave was intelligent, gentle, kind, and loving. Far too short of a life, as I hold so many special and loving memories of Dave.
    My love, Diane ❤

  4. David visited the Rec Center at CSU Pueblo very regularly. I enjoyed chatting with him during his visits, especially learning about all of his experience with cars and the industry. He was a kind man. All of us at the Rec Center were deeply saddened to hear of his passing. Our sincere condolences to his family. We will miss David – we already do.

  5. Blessed to know Dave. Met at the library and always seemed to run into each other especially at the health food store, usually followed by an interesting conversation. I am going to miss you buddy! Rest in Peace!!

  6. Dave was a gentleman. We were real estate agents at Camelot Real Estate. A soft spoken interesting man.

  7. I am sorry to hear about Dave. I knew him when he and I worked together when I was in Pueblo in my CPA practice. A good man-kind and humble.

  8. I just heard about Dave . I worked with Dave at Camelot. An outstanding person, master mechanic and friend. He helped me move into my house 35 years ago. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. May you Rest In Peace.

  9. My husband Tony and I met Dave at the Student Recreation Center at CSU-Pueblo several years ago. We were part of a handful of the older folks that went to the gym most mornings. Dave was always there and we had many interesting conversations. I always admired that he could jog around that track for so long! He and Tony shared a love of old cars and had many discussions about them. We have not returned to the rec center since Covid, but when we do we are sure going to miss his smiling face! Our condolences to Dave’s family and may he rest in peace.

  10. Dave and I were friend in Vietnam in 1968. We reconnected by phone after about fifty years and picked up our friendship again. We spoke often reminiscing about our Vietnam days and discussed about every other topic under the sun.
    He will be truly missed.
    Rest In Peace my friend, M

  11. David Vogel was a frequent guest at the recreation center I work at in Pueblo. I am a student employee and he came in every day and always walked around the track. This is a tragic accident and I’m sending thoughts and prayers to his family. May he rest in peace.


  12. David was a loyal member at the recreation center I work at in Pueblo. As a student staff employee, I would always see David come in and jog his miles on the track. He was very dedicated and I will sure miss having conversations with him daily.


  13. Dave and I met when we were both working for Camelot Real Estate. We became close friends and stayed in touch and friends for over 45 years. Dave will be missed.
