NAME: Rick Joel
MESSAGE: I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my old friend
Dave Watts. I have been out of the business for a few years now, so I have
lost contact with many of the friends I made during my time in casinos,
but that doesn't mean that they are or will be forgotten. I could go into
all the good memories of the times I spent in the company of not only Dave
but also Mike Barber, but I think it is sufficient to say that not only
were they two of the best, they were also guaranteed to brighten up any
day in their company, even if I had just had the shift from Hell.
I could go on, but I will finish by saying Rest in Peace Dave. My condolences
to all who knew him, Family and Friends and finally thanks for the laughter
and the memories.
NAME: maggie o'donnell
MESSAGE: I am so sorry to hear about the sad news of Dave Watts and
Mike Barber I knew them back in the days of the Sportsman, Dave was a lovely
person and always a laugh a minute,may they rest in peace.
The following was sent by Barclay Miller this evening in memorium of
his friend Dave Watts who passed away today.
