Long time Gear Pager Dave LaPenotiere died early Saturday morning after a 3 year long battle w Esophageal cancer. Dave endured incredible odds, near constant daily pain, but always had a positive attitude and smile on his face. He loved playing, and played in a band. He had a penchant for fine guitars and boutique amps. As he was so sick he did not sell off a lot of what he had bought, so I will need to sell some nice gear for him. I don't want to run afoul of TGP rules, but if interested to know more please PM me. Esophageal Cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the U.S. Heartburn can cause cancer. If you have persistent heartburn, constant reflux, or difficulty swallowing, please see your doctor and insist on an endoscopy. Early detection can save lives. Dave was only 60, and cut down in the prime of his life. So very unfair.
