RIP Deaf Dave Cope. Co-Original founder of this website


Recommended Posts

for those that don't know and most probably don't. Dave, aka Deaf Dave (couldn't hear a damn thing out of one ear and didn't mind we called him that)  is the one that built the very first version of the SMD website and forums. Me and him started all of this from nothing. He moved away and moved on a long time ago but still will always be a big part of how it all went down in the early days. 3 weeks ago he told me he had given up on his treatment because he was tired of 6 years of battling cancer. The doc told him he has about a year. I can't believe it happened so fast....damn.

 

I'm still in shock :(

I bought the last cutting board Dave ever made and it took on a completely new meaning as far as the value of it

As I type this I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that cancer has taken one of the greatest friends i have ever known. 

 

Steve knew David better than any of us and with how I knew David, I know you are in some pain bro. 

 

I am truly sorry for your loss Steve and everyone else that was close with David. 

 

He will be missed by many.

Did not know that about him. He never bragged about it or made himself bigger than he thought the was. He was a good freind and one hell of an inspiration to many. We would talk about wood work or fishing for hours lol. When I read about this morning I was in shock. We just talked a couple of days ago. He was tired but said nothing that would make a person to think it was that close. 

Condolences to you Steve as he obviously held a special place in your heart.

Sucks another one left us all.
