    Tells you what people think of him -- even if you were only around him a couple times.

    I felt an obligation to donate again. I can't imagine the pain his wife, son and family is feeling now. Jesus.

    John McLaren, who was manager of the Mariners when we visited Seattle, chipped in with $500. Awesome response all around

    Let me just echo, in what seems to be dark and turbulent times, there's still a lot of good out there. To all of you who answered the call and donated -- bravo.

    Goddamnit, this sucks. As good a guy as we've ever had around here. Saw some foreboding posts on his Facebook over the last few months but had no idea it was this dire until it hit Twitter yesterday. Shit fuck shit. So unfair he and his family are going thru this. Fuck. Thinking of you, Dave/Babar.

    There's a post on his FB page that says he passed this morning. I'm sitting here crying, hoping it isn't true and still hoping for a miracle. If I find out anything definitive, I'll pass it along and will also post about arrangements if this is indeed true. I can't tell you how much I want to get out there for whatever memorial they do. This is all so sad.

    From the GOFUNDMEPAGE:

    UPDATE: Dave passed away the morning of August 8th with his wife Jessica by his side. The GoFundMe will continue for as long as we can to support Jessica and Nolan.

    Goddamnit. Been checking his page and this thread regularly, dreading the inevitable. Fuck.

    Such a good guy. Another one gone way too soon.
