Sorry to hear about Dave. I worked with Dave a lot of years and he was a worm and congenial person.

Super Dave was a good friend of mine for many years. I will miss him. He was smart, funny and caring. He told the longest setups for a punchline and always enjoyed the joke as much as telling it. So long sailor, I wish you smooth seas, fair winds and a cold beer when you reach port.
I met Dave about a decade ago at Marikkas. Everyone called him "Super Dave" because if you asked how he was doing he'd reply "Super!" I grew up with out either of my grandfathers, but sitting with him at the corner of the bar made me feel at home. I will miss him.
