Dr. David B. Toth, a long-time friend, passed away on February 26, 2010. The Bisque brothers will miss him dearly.
An emergency room physician by profession, Dave was a passionate, intelligent, articulate man who loved life and pursued many interests; one of them happened to be amateur astronomy.
Dr. Dave, for whatever reason, was a champion for Software Bisque. He first met Tom Bisque in 1992 at the Texas Star Party and they quickly became buddies. Since then, Dave has attended almost every conference, star party, and astronomy-related event with us, in the role of “adopted brother”. He always went out of his way to help, including spending long days in our booths fielding questions. All on his vacation time.
Dave was also a valuable contributor to SB, and many other astronomy-related forums. He was even known to hop in his plane to visit a stranger, just to lend a hand.
Friends like Dave don’t come along very often. Our condolences to his wife Ronda, and his two sons Michael and Christopher.
