I regret to announce that after a long hard but brave struggle with cancer, Davey passed away on July 27 2011. Davey's faith was an inspiration to all who knew him. He knew he was in God's hands and he took life one day at a time. He never complained about his condition and he never blamed anyone. He pursued every available treatment, all the while knowing that his final fate was to be absent from his body and in the presence of the Lord. Rest well, brother, I will see you on the other side.
Bob travels back to Bryan for Dove reunion
Davey was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer and had a tumor removed and further surgeries and treaments that left him with overwhelming medical bills. The benefit was a huge success with standing room only. Bryan is a unique city with a history of many great musicians, most of whom played throughout the day and evening. Although weakened by his treatments, Davey was able to play, and made it through the evening with flying colors.
The band played some of the oldies that weren't oldies the last time they played them, like Train Kept A Rollin', Purple Haze, Funk #49, Crossroads, Ohio, and others. It was a wonderful reunion and everyone had a blast!
Bob recently recorded several guitar tracks for the album "The Way We Are", by new artist Shiloh-Sheray. Bob says, "Shiloh is a very talented young lady and I was happy to be asked to contribute to her new album. She is the kind of artist I like to see in Christian music!"
