Late Entry.
Very sorry to learn of Dave's passing.
While I did not know him, my brother Charlie did. On February 02, 2017, Charlie went to join Dave on the greatest river! Hope they find each other. :) Great smile Dave.
Kind regards,

I was saddened to learn of Dave's passing. As an Eastern "tenderfoot" who was lucky enough to have owned a home in Sun Valley for many years, Dave was always kind to me whenever I was in the shop. Although I only got to Sun Valley two or three times a year, he always greeted me by name and made me feel like one of the regulars. He was never without advice and always inquired about my experiences on the Wood and the Creek. He was truly one of a kind and will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Dave was such a special, wonderful person to know and be with. He was so generous, unassuming and honest, you felt fortunate to have him as a friend. You always had a great day if Dave was somehow part of it. Although fishing was his primary passion and focus, Dave seemed to radiate great character in all his dealings with friends and fishing associates as well. Susie and I visited Dave in Boise with his wonderful nurse Allison Ashford before he left for Green Lake in Maine last summer. Dave was gracious as ever even with his physical limitations, we failed to tell him of our great admiration for him thinking we would surely be together soon. Lesson learned, tell your friends how important they are in your life while they and you are still alive!!
Dave will not be forgoten, and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

You taught me a lot about flies and how to fish, Dave, but most of all you demonstrated how being genuinely kind to people and the environment provides incredible personal freedom and contentment.
