Rest in Peace East Bay Dave

Man... my heart broke a bit this morning.

EBD was a passionate motorcycle nut. His presence here made barf better for me.
He loved his time racing and his Kawasaki's.

We saw Dave struggle in life the last few years and barf came together to try to help....I am going to miss you Dave ...

Godspeed my friend

Condolences to Terri, the family and friends.

David Wright, AKA DaddyDave passed away on April 6, 2020.

I just got a call from his wife Terri. She was sorry she didn't tell us sooner, but she had a lot on her plate.

Dave slipped and broke his leg, then he went to a rehab center in Hayward called Gateway. During his stay at Gateway, he contracted COVID-19 and died as a result.

Dave was a friend to me and the entire ZRXOA and will be dearly missed. RIP.

Very sad news. Thought of Dave this past week as it had been some time since he had posted.
Condolences to Terri, and the Wright family and friends.

Dave

It hurts my heart to learn this news.
I miss him already.
Memories of countless conversations with him from old school KZ's to Ham radio and more are flooding my mind.
You will be missed Dave. Thank you for leading by example by always being a respectful and friendly presence around here year after year.
