I have always enjoyed his post, especially his love for the water, his Minnow of the Seas. He also was a big fan of Royal Caribbean and we followed him when he was cruising. DTW had a great sense of humor and will be missed by a lot of folks that share his love for being on the water....RIP Capt.

Saddens me to hear this. I always enjoyed his posts too. DTW will be missed. I know he really loved the Mariner OTS and being one of the first if not the first one onboard his cruises. I raise a glass to you. RIP dear friend.

I guessed I'd find this thread here Been awhile since posting. Never had the pleasure of meeting him in person, but always enjoyed his posts here and on FB. Sail on, Sailor.

I am sorry to hear this. He was always a positive and fun loving guy and his posts reflected that. He was taken far too early.

My condolences to his family.
Mike

Like so many of you, I was shocked and saddened to read this thread. However, is it me, or is there some earlier posts missing, such as the one that states his passing?

My favorite Dave the Wave story goes back a few years when he was exchanging posts with someone called "Corona Girl". replete with pictures of all sorts. She led him to beleive she would be on the same cruise as he was, then it turned out to be a hoax on her part.

She was never heard from again.

Rest in peace Dave; thank you for brightening up these boards with your posts and pictures.....

I remember their exchanges. She even (supposedly) posted pictures of herself. I never saw any posting of how he passed.

It appears he passed from complications from his cancer medications , I believe he had melanoma .
