Dave was a great guy, boss and friend. I had the honor to work with him in his last year. Dave was very smart with a massively diverse knowledge. He literally knew a little about everything and a lot about a lot of things.
He taught me to be innovative and try new methods when working with the old trucks and body work. He'd say to not worry about messing it up, "it's only metal and we can fix it".
I miss him, but know he's in a good place now. It really made my day to find this post while I was researching. It shows the impact he made in the vintage auto forums.
Rest in Peace brother Dave
