I just learned from Dave's daughter that he passed away on May 6th. Dave was a longtime Brodak attendee and pit boss. His social media accounts have been deleted by his family.  Rest easy Dave.

Dave will. Be surely missed. I always looked forward to seeing Dave at Brodaks, he made me feel at home. His airplanes took a backseat to none. He had a Legacy 40 that took some show awards,it was beautiful. I've included a pic of his Pathfinder that he built for the 2019 Fly In. Tight lines Dave.

What a bummer.  This sure has been a tough year.  Always enjoyed Dave's comradery at Brodaks.

Really sad, Dave was a good guy, one of those folks I looked forward to seeing at Brodak's.

Sorry to hear to about the lost of Dave. Dave was a staple at the Brodak Fly-In. I always enjoyed the conversations with Dave. He would go out of his way to help anyone out. So sad.

When we lived in Western PA Dave attended the Fun Fly's  and Contests my club, The Skylarks of Sharon, held he was a true and loyal friend. His constant help and encouragement at the Brodak FlyIn was always in evidence. I am so saddened to read this message. RIP Dave.

I don't like to read obituaries, so I'll think about Dave at the Brodak Flyin.  He flew combat in one of the early events.  After that he did a lot of motoring around on the carts hauling supplies, people, paperwork, and tools.  A generous helping hand when anyone needed one.

Rest easy, Dave.
