I'd love to send a letter to the family, if anyone has that contact information I'd appreciate it being passed along.

Damn! Thats sad.
It's at least comforting to know the man lived a much fuller life than many us will every do in a lifetime.

Hi all, this is ShooterDave's fiancée. I noticed your comments and wanted to confirm the details. ShooterDave was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia back in June of 2013. He fought a damn good fight and went to be with the Lord January 11, 2014. He was an amazing man and I was privileged to be his fiancée. In the 21 months I knew him we took a total of three road trips on a 650 V-Strom and we both loved every minute of it. He loved life, motorcycles and bringing joy to people's lives. I feel honored to have known him.

I'm sorry for your loss. While I never had the pleasure of knowing him very well,I know he's an awesome person and this is truly a loss to this world.


I messaged Dave's brother on facebook as well asking this, but is there somewhere I could send a letter to the family?

Dave had Leukemia. It was a fairly recent development. He sought treatment but it yielded no results so he chose to not seek further help and to spend the time with his girlfriend I believe. That is the last I heard from him and that was a few months ago. Before Thanksgiving? I was sad to hear it when he told me but he was at peace with his choice. Dave lived an incredible adventure I was luckily enough to meet him when he came through and be a part of it - Best sick day ever for me! :) He left a mark on my life and was truly one of the happiest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

It is truly tragic that Dave has passed on but it would have more tragic if he had died having not lived a life at all. Instead in his short time here Dave took advantage and lived a life that made him happy. We should all be so lucky.

Dave I will never forget how you just couldn't stop smiling when we sat at that burger king for lunch. I remember being so envious because you were so abundantly happy and at peace because you had the courage to live the life the way you wanted to. I admire you for having the courage to die on your own terms too. I know it was a hard choice but you faced it head on with no fear. I'm proud to call you my friend.

RIP
