    Oh boy! I just found out about Dave’s passing. It was quite a shock. David and I knew each other as kids in junior high, and our moms were good friends. David used to hang out at the bike shop where my older brother Dale hung out, so sometimes I’d go there, too. I’m so sorry for the loss of a great guy for all of us! Even though we hadn’t seen each other for about 50 years.
