Neighbor Spotlight: Dave Ralley

Man standing with a circular-shaped gourd around his neck and shoulders. Standing next to a house on one side and greenery on the other. Smiling and looking to the side.

As stated in his nomination form, Dave Ralley is the “neighbor we all hope to have.” Living on 66th near SE Boise Street for over five years, Dave is touted as a masterful gardener, never failing to share the bounty of his garden or his girlfriend Alex’s baked goods with others. He regularly helps an older neighbor with her yard, and with hauling her trash cans in and out.

When he’s not offering a kind word or helping hand, you can find Dave helping design software user experiences, and, well… in his garden. Read on to learn more about Dave.
