  1. My sincere condolences. Dave gave me a few tips and was very encouraging when I first started playing racquetball. No matter how easy of a shot I botched, with a tap of the racquet and a smile, he’d say “Tough shot, tough shot…. we’ll get ’em next time.” We’ll miss you Dave.

  2. Dave was such a good guy. He loved racquetball and was such a gentleman on the court. My condolences to his family. There is a hole in the heart of our racquetball community .

  3. God Bless Dave. What a great man. I remember very vividly playing with Dave on the court. He always had a smile and kind words for everyone. He made you wonder why you weren’t smiling. Thanks Dave. We will miss you.

  4. I miss David White very much. When I encounter members of our racquetball community, we always speak about the good times we had with Dave. He was a true gentleman and scholar of the game who enjoyed staying late after he was done playing in order to watch and encourage his friends and competitors to ‘BE THEIR BEST”. Dave was a class act and family man who always had the time to chat with friends. Always a smile on his face and a positive attitude to live life to the fullest…Thank You for your friendship and caring Dave. We are sorry you are no longer with us here but we know you will be playing racquetball again with us some day..no flailing this time Dave.
