I just learned that David passed away today. For those that don't know him he was very well known in the skeet and trap community as a Krieghoff gun specialist as well as a really nice guy. He had been sick for a long time and it was finally his time to go. He will be missed by many that knew him.

Sorry to hear that. Dave has worked on a few things for me. Always did great work and a wealth of knowledge.

Rest in peace Dave.

Darn! That is a hard kick in the stomach. What a great guy Dave was. I really hate to hear that. I guess I'll give Libby a call and attempt to express my condolences the best I can. Mike

Dave was definitely one of the good guys; a man of his word.

I bought and sold some Krieghoff items with him. He was a true gentleman to deal with.
He will be missed.

Condolences to his loved ones

Vaya con Dios,

Dave

Hated to hear this but knew he wasn't doing well. We had missed Him coming to Tri County in Odum Ga. He was very good at what He did. He will be sorely missed. Will be praying for the family. Jackie B.

Dave did know about as much as anyone could know about K guns and a lot of other guns --- he must have fought this to the end- he was still pitching and sent me some inventory list maybe a month ago

Sorry to hear this

Known him for more than 30 years and have nothing but memories of good times because of his great sense of humor. He is missed.

He is one of the last generation of men that his word was his bond. If you told him or he told you something, it was in the bank. Bought my 1st Krieghoff from him. He will be truly missed. RIP Dr. K.

RIP Dr. K

Dave mentored me to a first 100 straight in skeet - with a San Remo set he supplied: there was hardly a good soul in the one field club at Lyman in that era that didn't shoot a K-gun that Dave had supplied - and maintained.

This was back in the 90's, when Dave was still at the top of his game: as pleasurable as it was to shoot together, the winding road back to his then home base in Greer equaled that with a stop by to share a Miller ..... and conversation of worldly things.

Huddled against the chill of the raging Nor-easter here tonight, those memories warm me - and will continue to do so: RIP Dave ...

I too have very fond memories of shooting with David and his wife Libby. David would always have some K-guns in the back of vehicle and was always fair with his price. When I bought mine from him back in 1988 he never charged me for any repairs, tried to give him some money but would never accept it (it was like a lifetime warranty). About 10 years ago he sold our oldest son a K32 because he wanted to give skeet shooting a try-David told him to pay him as he saw fit. Well he kept the K32 for several years then got married and shooting took a backseat, he called David about selling it and David told him to bring it back and gave him five hundred dollars more that what he paid for it. David was one of my skeet heros growing up in the sport and will be greatly missed.

David was a wonderful friend to me for over 30 years. In that period of time we bought, sold and traded not only K32s and K80s but traded many stories and shared a lot of laughs. Not only was he an amazing gunsmith he was an amazing person.

He will be greatly missed not only for his gumsmithing abilities but for his friendship too.
