I'll miss Dave; he could always elicit a chuckle...

RIP Dave. Condolences to his family. Shocking to learn. He worked on one of my sets.

A real shame to lose a good VK member so young.

Shows we can end up checking out at any time so we should enjoy what we get while we can.

One day yall might be celebrating my untimely demise (aye no yall want me gon ) if I'm not careful.

Very sorry to hear this. Rest in peace, Big Dave. Way too young.

I am saddened every time we lose one of our AK and VK family. R.I.P. Big Dave, you were an awesome VK forum member, and a great TV troubleshooter and restorer.
