I was so very saddened to hear of Coach Brink’s passing. I was fortunate to have played for Coach Brink at Benson In 63 and 64. Over the years I have told so many great stories that I could remember of how he coached us. He was tough and we truly appreciated it.....more so after we graduated. I also related visits that I had with him that you just don’t have with most coaches and I hold them dearly. My prayers are with the family. Dennis Highland

So sorry to hear of Dave’s Passing. I taught with Dave my first year as an Industrial Arts teacher at Millard Jr High in 1972. I have so many great memories! Dave helped me get a summer job as assistant manager at Hitchcock swimming pool . My deepest sympathy! Randy Peck

Many great memories of teaching with Dave at MCJH. Terry Eicher and I visited him a few years ago and we had a ton of laughs that afternoon. Dave is legendary and an absolute classic.

Dave was a huge influence on my life, and because of him I became a teacher and a coach. I have wonderful memories of Dave and his influence on young people, he will be deeply missed. Larry Argersinger

My Heart is very Sad hearing about Dave. I remember him coming over to my Papa's house (Ike Eisenhauer) and we would go out to breakfast during the summers. He was a great guy and a great friend to my Papa. He always told me he was my uncle so I always called him Uncle Dave. I know he was heartbroken when Papa passed so I am glad they are together again. I sure will miss you.

Much love
