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.

It is the people like him who have shaped this site over the years.
Sad day for the industry.
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.

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.
