I gave David a bunch of blocks back about 15 or so years ago. But I think he had cancer , not sure, long time ago. Yes he was a very talented man.

This past summer I saw Dave a few times at the Friday night cruise in Halifax which is near Plympton. He was not looking well. Let us know if you were able to contact him with the info from KDL. Yes...He is a wealth of knowledge.
I'll look and see if I have another number to reach him.
