My wife and I visited Newfoundland once.  We were very fortunate to have been visiting Dave's next door neighbour and to have a few pounds of crab to feast on in their shed (with a garage door).  My wife and I struggled opening those crab legs until Super Dave walked in.  From that moment on, that man threw his little pocket knife into action and my wife did not have another worry about finding another piece of crab.  Dave was a true gentleman with great stories and gave us one of our fondest Newfoundland memories. Dave was only in our lives for a few hours, but he will always be remembered.  We were sorry to hear about his passing and offer our sincerest sympathies to his family.
