I, like many others only knew him through various firearm forums, but that is not to say that he did not leave his mark. I was on another forum when someone started a blatant argument with a few of us, Dave gave us encouragement on not lashing back, but letting him do his job as a moderator. He had the ability to see both sides of an argument and help find a resolve. Dave, you will be missed. My father once told me, "a mans life is not judged by the time he spent or his wealth on this earth, but by the name he earns being honest, fair, and sincere and leaving a mark that is not soon forgotten". Dave, you did that. Rest in peace.
Mrs. McCracken, I hope you can find some peace in knowing his wisdom and mannerisms made our time on these forums a little better. He had love for firearms and humble knowledge that most will never have. Thank you , and I am truly sorry.
