On behalf of my family, I want to extend our deepest condolences. Dave was a wonderful man and someone whom I shall remember fondly. He came into our lives wanting to fulfill a dream of being a professional wrestler. Through his own hard work and dedication, he achieved that dream. It was an honor to have him on our shows and to get to know him over the years. Personally, I will always remember Dave as being one of the guys who went out of his way to be nice to me in the locker room. Now, the Chef and Boogie can have some great matches at the wrestling ring in the sky.
