    For those of you who aren't frequenting FT as much these days, longtime FlyerTalker Newself passed away suddenly this morning at the age of 55.

    He was registered here, but appears to not have any posts yet.

    Very sad day :(

    It was indeed a shock to learn this sad news today. Dave was a true gentleman and friend of so many in the FT community, and now here at MP. So many of us shared pints and drams and Cohibas (not to mention wines and steaks) with him through our travels. We can be comforted to know that these last few years were ones of great joy as Jeanne came into his life. Tonight I pour a dram of Aberlour (the distillery we both visited two years ago) in memory of the good times we and others have shared with Dave.

    Slainte old chum!

    Dave was a class act and good guy. I first met Dave 11 years ago at the CO Presidents Club. He was a low key guy that was a good listener. He rode on the very first BRT.

    So long Dave. We'll miss you at F L 3 7000.

    Dave used to spend quite a lot of time in Seattle, so my niece and I went out to meet him at the airport for a drink of couple of times and they started dating. They came toether to the very first SeaDo--even long before Missy--and attended the original PIP. Over the years they still remained good friends, so it was very hard for me to call her and tell her of his passing.

    Later today I will scanand post some of those old pictures in remembrance.

    Last I checked, the thread on Flyertalk was 4 pages and over 2000 views. That says something about Dave.
    I was on the 405 yesterday afternoon. When I saw the sign for Signal Hill, I got the goosebumps.

    edit - 5 pages and 2900 views.

    Earlier today, Dave was laid to rest with family and friends gathered around. We will miss him but not forget him, and each time any of us who knew him get together, we will toast him and remember the good times he shared with so many of us. And Jeanne, be strong and savour the memories and particularly those of the last 10 months.

    Although, I'd learned about this unfortunate turn of events early last week, I'm admittedly still in shock. Such a great, warm hearted guy.. and so very young.. he's gone, but surely not forgotten.. 11 years goes so very quickly. He'll be sorely missed .. RIP .. Condolences to all the surviving family and friends...

    A few of us are gathering this weekend to remember our friend Dave. We are doing our annual California wine country weekend that we shared with him for more than a half-dozen years. We plan to stop at the vineyard where he and Jeanne were married and where we will appropriately toast Dave once more. We miss you old chum, but will celebrate our times with you!

    I did not have the good fortune to know Dave, but it sounds like he made an impact on the community. Rest in peace.
