Rest in peace Dave. You will forever be a friend, idol, mentor and inspiration to me.

Like many, Dave trained me initially to be a rigger. After a few years I got good at it. One night in Eloy Dave, Weird Wayne, Dave Mahoney and myself were sitting around a campfire. Mahoney and I had the loft there at the time. Listening to  Dewolf and His Weirdness discuss so many things that were way above the heads of Mahoney and mine was one of the greatest treats of my life. Respect, Love and Peace to you my friend. Mahoney and I still talk about that night.

As did many many others I got my Rigger Rating from Handsome Dave.  I came back to his loft for several years after to help teach.  Dave loved jokes, but wasn't the best at punchlines.  One night after class, Dave was in the loft, (which was in his basement), and he heard two jokes back to back.  The first was "I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous"  and the second was "I'm an atheist, Thank God!"

He bounded up to the kitchen and loudly announced "I'd give my right arm to be an atheist!!!"

The next year I taught I was looking in his desk for something and I found 3X5 cards of jokes with the punchlines,,,

He will be missed.
