    Dave was a wonderful guy with a great sense of humor. We will always treasure the fun we had with him in amateur radio and the laughs we shared. Farewell Zed.

    I worked with Dave in about 1974 to 1977.. He was a prince of a fellow, with a great sense of humor, and always had a kind word for everybody he met. He treated everybody he knew with respect. A truly great man.
