So sorry for your loss. Dave was a cool cat. He will be sorely missed.

Sorry to hear about this. I really liked his style of play and posture at the the table.

What a great person and fine player he was. Dave was on the PGA golf tour before becoming a professional pool player. No one else ever did that I'm sure. He won some big tournaments, including the Classic Cup in Chicago, beating Jose Parica in the finals!

I had a helluva Bank Pool match with Dave a long, long time ago. He was a perfect gentleman to play with, sharking was not in his vocabulary. I was always happy to see him when I went back to Norfolk. I would go over to his shop and reminisce about the old days. I'm gonna miss you buddy!

Dave was 6'6" and was definitely one of the best "tall" players of all time.

6'5''? 230
 
The Beaumeister, good solid, tall, east coast player. Those tall guys are hard to beat sometimes. Great table demeanor, RIP my friends, and to family he will be missed, he was a pleasure to be around.

I never had the opportunity to meet Dave but knew him through his precise, brilliant play on numerous Accu-Stats videos. He was a monster player who taught me much about the game and how it should be played.

RIP, Dave.

Sorry to hear that. I was there when he won the BC Open in Binghamton, NY in 1986.
Rest in peace Dave.

yes he did i saw that tourney in person and was my 1st pro event. nice man he was a hell of a shot. memory serves me st Louis Roberts beat miz and buddy hall back to back in 1986. oh dirty Danny Jones placed high as well and Allen Hopkins? ALWAYS REMEMBER BOWMAN MAKING A 3 RAIL KICK SHOT AGAINST EARL AND THE LOOK ON EARLS FACE WAS PRICELESS! :(
