In the open thread yesterday Ira pointed out something sad that is worth sharing with the whole community here. Longtime Seattle Bubble commenter David Losh passed away on October 10th.
18 June, 1953~10 October, 2013
David, a loving husband, father, uncle and brother, passed from this world peacefully last Thursday, October 10th, after a valiant battle against colon cancer.
David was born in the Maxwell AFB Hospital, Montgomery, AL, on June 18, 1953, to Marion Jean Slizeski Losh and John Harvey Losh, DMD, as his father was serving his country during the Korean War.
Dave grew up in the Blue Ridge Community of Seattle, attending Christ the King and Blanchet High Schools. Although he attended some college classes, Dave was drawn to the Real Estate and Property Maintenance business from a very early age as he joined his elder brother in a house painting enterprise while still in high school. Dave eventually became a successful licensed Real Estate Broker and the co-founder of Seattle House Cleaning Company, in North Seattle. – See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/seattletimes/obituary.aspx?n=david-allen-losh&pid=167636904&fhid=23423#sthash.X3pnO3M5.dpuf
Another longtime commenter here, Ira Sacharoff, put it well:
I met David in person at a couple of Seattle Bubble meetups, and was glad to meet him in person. Some people are completely different online and in person, and David was one of them. Online, he didn’t always make sense. But in person he was coherent, friendly, and funny. I always enjoyed reading his stuff here. I didn’t always agree with what he wrote, but I think he added greatly to the entertainment value of Seattle Bubble, and I’ll miss him.
