It always hurts to hear of one of our friends passing. Dave will be missed by a lot of us on this board. We are like a family on here, and its just like loosing one of our own. Sarge was one of only two folks on the board that had visited my tracks, and raced with me. He had brought his Grandson with him on a visit, and we had a great day of racing. Dave was the main person behind the planning and designing of probably one of the biggest, most successful Proxy races at HRW. The Pan AM. He will surely be missed by all that knew him.

Before he moved, Dave lived about 30 miles from my brother. We emailed a few times but I never was able to get up to northern Indiana and meet him before the move. I am sorry to see that he has died. It is people like him who infect others with their passion and appreciation for slot cars. Lights in the slot universe are a little bit dimmer this morning.

I know this feeling too,
Truly sorry to see here about the loss of your good pal,
Sounds like there are lots of good memories, what we all hope for

They can see your tires, might see your gear stack,
Never let 'em know your ring and pinion!
