DF96, Dave,
Even when you only know somebody from words on a screen, learning of their passing comes as a shock.
A steady presence here, voice of science.
Like hearing music from passed artists, reading his posts here will feel a bit strange from now on, knowing there won't be any new ones. The knowledge remains.
Rest peacefully DF96.

I am truly shocked.

I thought he was a wonderful person, and he did have a great way of getting the point across.
Very funny sometimes.

Diyaudio is suddenly missing a vital component.
You will be missed.

I'm late to the gathering. DF96 was a "straight from the hip" no horseshit kinda guy. RIP sir. You clearly will be missed here.

if people react to you a certain way, it is not because of them but more because of you....

I only found out today. Bummer.

If you click a user's name, it will bring up a menu including "Find More Posts by <user>". Ta-dah!

One of our major voices of reason for sure.

Seems like he was older than I thought (like his 50s) but not old old - from his bio, maybe 70, early 70s?

I always looked up to him for his extensive knowledge and no-nonsense attitude.

Rest in peace, Dave, and thanks for all the great posts.

From what he said he worked with Dr Higgs at a slightly higher level. He might have been pulling my leg? I doubt it. I really liked him despite often being told I was wrong. Usually he offered ideas to follow that I might learn. Thank you Dave. I never had the courage to ask him why that valve. I have a few.
