Hey guys. I hate doing these posts but we lost another good man this week.

Dave Tefft (Tsgtret) has lost his battle with cancer. I don't know all the particulars, I will leave that to the people that know. All I know is Dave will be sorely missed.

He and I spent a lot of time talking on the phone about slot cars and life in general. I will miss those conversations.

Goodspeed Tsgt. You will be missed around here.

Thank you for posting Dave.

Yes, he will truly be missed. Many an hour was spent talking with him and I feel privileged because of it.

Even across the Pacific Ocean I felt his good character....he was a great guy.

Prayers and sympathy to his family.

Very very sad news. Nothing else really to say. He will be badly missed and I guess this means I will again start adding black armbands to my proxy drivers in 2018...

Oh no... This is very sad news indeed. He will be missed. I shared many an email with Ohio Memories, good stuff that will stay in my inbox forever.
This on the anniversary of my brother passing too. Safe travels TsgtRet.

Sad news - he always had positive things to say about slot cars :)

One of our local racers - John "Twin Cam" - lost his battle with cancer recently - like Dave he had a passion for his slot cars

Both shall be missed

I also had some great email conversations with Tsgt. Dave. He will be truly missed. Now he'll be able to go for a ride in the F4 upstairs and the rest of the time he'll be working on Peel field and running the slots.

I don't like having to see posts like this. It's always sad to see someone pass on. A good friend of mine said we all get a turn you just don't when.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of a fellow hobbyist.
I know I do not know most of you but feel that maybe I should share my personal story here. I was diagnosed with Stage 4B cancer at the base of my tongue. I have never smoked in my life. It was a tumor that was brought on by a strain of the HPV Virus which is the fastest growing form of cancer for men over the age of 45. I went through 35 treatments of radiation and 3 intense chemo procedures with cisplatin (nasty stuff). Neither were something I would want anyone to have to experience and lost over 50 lbs. in the process.
May I please ask each one of you if something does not seem right please get it checked out. The virus I had we all carry with us and here is what I want to share they have vaccines for both girls and boys roughly between the ages of 12-21 that can be administered that will help prevent cervical cancer in women and the form of cancer that I had in my throat in men. So please if you have brothers/sisters, sons/daughters, grandchildren please make sure they get this vaccine. Cancer is never a good thing but we must face it and work with the resources that are available.
I am lucky and blessed to be here. I state this in respect to Tsgt and his family please never give up in yourself or the support of others. Aloha Dale
