Dave Slife is a lifelong Lakewood Resident. He graduated from Lakewood High School in 1971.
After working for another contractor for 12 years, he decided to open his own HVAC business in 1990. However, six months after he started the business, he was called up for Desert Storm. He was in the Army Reserve. When he returned, he still wanted his own business and with the help of some friends, he started again and has been going ever since.
Dave attributes his success to a lot of community involvement. A huge part of his business has been generated and retained because he is active and visible in the community that he serves. Slife Heating & Cooling, Inc. participates in all of the local events in town. As a result, the Slife name and brand are well known and have become a household name.
In his spare time, Dave sings Baritone in a competing barbershop quartet and two choruses. He is a Lakewood Auxiliary Police Officer, a member of ACCA, and Lakewood Kiwanis.
Dave is married with 3 children and 2 grandchildren. He and his wife, Mary Lynn reside in Lakewood – there is no place he would rather be.
