The Ferguson Family wishes to extend our condolences to the Brewer Family. I worked with Dave at Genentech, Inc. for over a decade on the Graveshift. He always greeted the sunrises with his signature cheery saying, "hey, hey, hey, it's another wonderful day at Genentech!" He and Gloria were always so kind and even rented my first apartment to me at the Eastmoor Apts. In Daly City where they managed the complex. I will always remember Dave with great fondness.
