Dave Ross

This blog was originally started anonymously. I think it’s OK to tell you now, the author’s name was Dave Ross. My name is Paul, and I’m writing this final entry in Dave’s absence.

On November 15th, 2006, Dave lost his battle with cancer. He went into the hospital for the surgery that he described here, in earlier posts, but he never recovered. He died due to complications during recovery.

Dave was a good person, and a dear friend. His loss will be felt by all who knew him.

The links below are for audio, video, and pictures from Dave’s life. I hope they bring back fond memories for all who knew him.
