He was an accomplished public speaker, educator, and an expert marksman. Personal fitness was a priority, and he was an accomplished author of numerous publications and books. Dave was a lover of all things related to space and collecting meteorites was his passion. His collection, Falling Rocks, is one of the largest and most impressive collections in private hands. Dave was an inspirational leader, mentor to many, and loved by all. Dave met his life partner, Kasia, at a coffee shop and they shared six plus years of happiness together.
