Daves passing has upset me real bad to the point that it's really hard to even say anything. I wasn't that close to him but he made a special impression on me that only a unique person like him can do. He texted me last month and said he was trying to stay positive about things and I said we should hang out sometime. He said "promise" and I said yup. Well that never happened and I have felt terribly guilty for it.
I met him about 7 years ago or so. He drove down and picked up a engine from Bill down in elma for my daughters 75 b210 which I still have. He threw it in the back of his goon drove it to my house and helped me install it. Dave was always willing to help someone in need.
