I used to work for Dave at Amarr a long time ago and I was deeply saddened to learn of his passing. I didn’t know Dave much outside of work other than sharing the occasional Guinness after hours, but I remember him as being one of the kindest and most considerate people I ever knew. He looked out for everyone under his wing and we always had funny, intelligent conversations when there was free time. He was a friend to anyone he ever met and I will miss him.
