Very Sad news...
Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.
My condolences

My heart is broken. Dave was a man of integrity and for whom I have
great respect.
He has supported me in many ways. I've shared a beer and I've shared
some tears with him. He stands as an icon in the meteorite community
and a great family man.

Both Kat and I send our love and prayers to the Gheesling family,
especially Maddie and Kasia.

Dave was a truly genuine person and I am so grateful to have been his
friend and a part of his life. Rest in Peace my friend

John & Katina Cabassi
