I regret to inform you that David Dinning passed away after a fight with cancer on 8/9/19. I know he enjoyed going to your events. 

I'm his oldest child and was actually born in Germany when my Dad was stationed there. He was buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery right next to my mother, who was also an AF Veteran.
