With heavy hearts, we bid goodbye to father,husband and friend David Paul Mottorn. July 16, 2011, Dave died suddenly, but doing something he loved best, biking along the Freeport-Butler Trail.
Dave was a great lover of nature and a great storyteller. Frequently, these passions came together, when he would spin an entertaining tale along a hiking trail or while dipping his kayakâ€™s oar into the water. He loved singing, too, but his wry mantra, â€śIf you donâ€™t sing good, sing loud,â€ť should be an indicator of his choral abilities.
