My prayers uplifted for the Antry family. My brothers and I were the same ages as the 2 older Antry sons and lures up a block from each other. Naturally we spent many times at each others homes. The Antrys were a significant part of my childhood. Much love to them as well. Mr Antry and his lovely wife Mary Ann exemplified a godly marriage and raised their sons well. Was also a great model to follow in our community. he did well as a faithful servant. Now giving God perfect praise.

I knew Dave as a good friend when I lived in Waterloo (2011-2019). He always greeted worshipers with a smile as they entered the door at First Baptist Church, Waterloo. He will be greatly missed. Bob Cook
