December 5, 1959 – September 21, 2017
Dave passed away recently, and Idaho lost a good man and fellow chess-player. He had been living in Payette.
I met Dave through chess in Boise many years ago. He promoted chess and helped people learn the game. He told me he had played a lot of chess during his ten years in the Navy. Recently, he had been a chess volunteer at the Snake River Correctional Institution in Ontario, Oregon.
He was the kind of person who would gladly go over your games with you to find the best moves. He was very patient. Dave will be missed by his family and many friends.
