Recruited by UCLA, Dave became team captain and was voted Most Valuable Player in his Junior year. Dave was recently inducted into the UCLA Hall of Fame. In 1973, Dave was drafted by the Oakland Raiders and during his illustrious career as starting center helped lead the team to three Super Bowl victories. Dave is survived by his loving dog Dillon, his daughter Christen Mary Dalby, his son Daniel Merle Dalby and their mom Cathy Dalby-London of Pleasanton, CA; also survived by his parents Merle and Marge Dalby and his sister Lisa Jenkins and brother Steve Dalby.
