It's a long time since I didn't look at WA, and it's a terrible new to know about Dave's death.
A so young man.............. Rest in Peace Dave

Although I didn't know Dave, I always enjoyed his posts as they were filled with the details and passion we collectors relish.

Now-a-days fewer truly knowledgeable collectors as Dave was are willing to spend their time to help others out sharing their 'secrets', when there is nothing in it for them but just the satisfaction of being helpful to another collector. And doing that day after day to many a complete stranger whom he was not trying to sell anything to. - He will be missed.

My condolences to his family.

Sorry to hear this sad news. Dave gave me some invaluable advice and excellent pointers when assessing the authenticity of an RK I owned.!!

Dave's family has asked me to sincerely thank everyone here for all your kind words and support.

Cindy, the kids and Dave's parents have all read the wonderful comments that so many people had to say about Dave and they're extremely grateful for all the kindness you have shown.

I too am shocked. I just learned of this...a year later. I bought Dave's last Erel's when he had changed to collecting RK's. I visited him several times at his lovely home and busy office. He kindly gave me advice as a private detective (former LAPD) on several occasions. He was a great guy and will be missed.

I've only just now seen this and am stunned as I haven't been checking into WAF as much this year. We missed Dave after he left the hobby and now we'll have to miss him for good. Thanks for letting us know.
