Shocking, terrible news. Thanks for letting us know.
He was a good friend.
For a couple of years, we spoke by phone almost daily, sometimes multiple times.
A golden heart, always wanting to preserve billiard history in all forms.
He worked hard to keep ABR going, he loved it and was great doing it. Gifted...
I just called a very close friend of David's in Tulsa with the news, who is also heartbroken.
David, may you rest in Paradise.
Does anyone have a photo of Dave?
I've only ever had contact with him through here and never met him in person.
I always thought there was time to meet him at an expo or tournament in the future.
Our digital community here is so vast, yet so limited. I appreciate being able to cross paths and experience folks like Dave and yourselves, and it's something that's so easy to be taken for granted.
We were so very fortunate to experience Dave's contributions to the billiards world here.
I got this picture from his Facebook page, I hope it's OK to post it. I didn't know him, but I felt like I did from reading his posts and listening to his show. He was one of the good ones, and contributed so much.
I'm really going to miss David Bond. I am humbled by my own ego which, tells me that I have all the time in the world to keep in touch with my friends; only to have them swiftly removed from this plane.
Fellow friend, comrade, and menace - I am still in shock.
What a loss for AZ and the entire billiard community. David was constantly making such valuable contributions via his podcasts, that were in-depth looks at important segments of the billiard world. He truly enjoyed his work and the impact his shows had on all of his listeners.
Like so many others, it is almost incomprehensible to me that he is gone so soon and so abruptly. David has left some big shoes to fill! :angel2: :smiling-heart:
OMG! This is terrible news. David was in his fifties, so this is very unexpected. I loved having Dave broadcast Randyg and I's "One Minute Pool Instructor" tips, that ran for 2 or 3 years on ABR. He will be sorely missed!
