THe Sad Passing of Dave Shaer

Dave Shaer (1946-2021)

We are desperately sorry to break the news that Dave Shaer passed away yesterday (8th April) as a result of a sudden massive heart attack from which he failed to recover.   Dave was a fierce and close friend to many, he was held in the highest esteem by everyone who knew him, and his tireless work in so many walks of life will be irreplaceable.
