    I have some great and warm memories of my friend Dave. He and I worked together at two different jobs: First, as pump jockeys at Dealie’s Texaco station in Kanab. One summer, we both grew weary of the fun and excitement of that occupation and seized the opportunity to work as “extras” on Death Valley Days, then filming in the Kanab area. We co-starred in several episodes including roles both as old-west bad guys (roaring around on horseback and wreaking havoc on a Chinese immigrant’s mulberry orchard) and as Cavalry blue-leg privates guarding the gates at the old Kanab movie fort. In one scene where Dave was a local townsman and I was flatland saloon gambler, we caused the director to call “Cut” and start over because we were hamming it up shamelessly in the background of a wagon race scene. What great fun we had!

    I’m sorry to hear of Dave’s passing but confident he’s found greener pastures and unspeakable joy and rest in the arms of our Lord. May his family be blessed with that same confidence and faith in the redemption that comes to us all through Jesus Christ. Farewell until tomorrow, my friend.
