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.
Rick Joel.
