Dave and his wife Danni D. Lougee (DOB: October 18, 1960) live in Great Falls, Virginia, with their son Nash. Looks like Danni had some legal trouble in an old estate matter.
Nash, their son, attends Langley High in McLean, VA. Here’s his Facebook page. He’s also apparently an accomplished tennis player.
