Dave was born in Hershey on October 1, 1954. He worked many years at the former Fruehauf Trailer Company in Middletown and later at Tri-State Trailer Sales in East Petersburg. He loved listening to oldies music, watching NASCAR races and enjoyed playing poker with family at reunions.

He was preceded in death by his father Daniel W. Lines Jr., infant brother Daniel W. Lines III, and brother Terry L. Lines. We all love and will miss him greatly. As he would say, “love you whole bunches.”
