Sad duty to report that Dave Bellis [webmasterworld.com] passed away this last week.

Dave was member #4 on WebmasterWorld in 1999 and was an admin here for many years. You could always count on Dave for an unbiased independent opinion. I will remember Dave best for is unflinching insistance that the forums remain advertising free and that a subscription model could work. Dave was the first person to donate to WebmasterWorld and signup for a subscription.

Dave was always helping people out on the boards. One of his first major deeds here was helping a fellow member get back in Google, retool her site, and go on to become very successful in her niche.Our condolences to his family He will be missed.

DaveAtIFG is one member name that really reminds me of my early days on WebmasterWorld. back then I was the newbie and he had the knowledge, but was very willing to share what he knew and help out members wherever possible.

It is the people like him who have shaped this site over the years.

Sad day for the industry.

Mack.

I never met Dave in person, but we shared many memorable moments together online. He will be sorely missed, but always remembered.

Onya Dave!

I can't say enough about Dave. His kindness and generousity towards me will never be forgotten. See [webmasterworld.com...]

Just 10 weeks ago, I finally got to meet him in person when he was able to come and visit me in the Caribbean. It was his first real vacation in years and we had a grand time! I will treasure the fact that we were able to meet and I could finally thank him in person. He stuck with me through thick and thin. I will miss him.

Wow, that's really sad. We emailed back and forth to talk about SEO every couple months or so. Liane, I'm glad that you got to see him so recently.

Condolences for Dave, may god give strength to his family and friends to recover fast and do the deeds he may have requested in his life time. I do not know him personally and never intracted online with him but his contribution on webmasterworld is visible which had given me an admirable reputation for his name.

One thing's for sure, Dave was influential, an educator, and a good buddy to many in the SEO circuit.

I consider it a great privilege and honour to have known him.

I was reading some of his old 2002 and 2003 posts only yesterday, and thinking that I hadn't seen him around in a while...

I remember when he announced that he was stepping down as admin on doctor's orders and it seemed like such a loss at the time.

I'm sad to hear that the loss is truly permanent now. It's funny, we live in this little world at WebmasterWorld that our families don't really know about. I hope his knows how much he was liked and valued here.
