Re: Rip dbr0051

Planning on stopping by to pay my respects around 11ish. May or may not make the trip to the cemetery. Wish I knew Dave better, but he obviously meant a lot to many LR folks…

Re: Rip dbr0051

Dave was a very dear friend of mine, and at one point we were even neighbors. We would talk every week or so about life, his mom, our work, and everything in between. I saw him a few weeks ago and told him I was worried about him (a lot going on in his life) and to take care of himself first, and everything else second. I know he was leaving something out as he did not want me to worry. He just wanted to know how I was doing...that's the way he was. He hated the fact that I was moving to Georgia, but assured me he would visit when he could, and I promised him I would see him as much as I could. He said he loved me and gave me one of his bear hugs. "I Love you too Dave" was the last thing I said to him.

I will miss my friend greatly.

Re: Rip dbr0051

I can't believe what I'm reading. Dave and I go back to the 80's. I haven't kept in touch lately because I knew he was busy with his mother. I had know clue he was having health issues other then his diabeties. I didn't even get to pay my respects.
R.I.P. David.

Re: Rip dbr0051

I'm just catching up on this. To say I'm shocked and deeply saddened is not enough. I am upset I just now found out and missed paying homage to a really great guy. I wish I could turn back time and gone with him to race-- it's a lesson to me-- I let that slip by because of some lame reason or other. I remember the fun we had at Mark's house and the ride there. Trying to kick start that damn Yamaha-- I limped for a week. It explains why my last e-mail went unanswered. Like many here, I had no clue of his health problem-- hell-- he was only 49, I expected him to come to my funeral! I'm just blown away-- that's all I can say. GODSPEED Dave. I can only hope someday we can get together on that big race track up there and see what that Yamaha will really do.

Re: Rip dbr0051

I only met Dave one time at the Alley. I can't even remember what he was riding that day but I know it was something unquie just like him. I wish I had gotten to know him better. RIP Dave.

Re: Rip dbr0051

As I have lived through my own health situation I have thought about Dave from time-to-time and how I wished I would have had an opportunity to get to know him better. He just seemed like he could be a perfect friend.

Tomorrow is not promised to any of us. Carpe Diem!

RIP Dave!

Jeff
