Dave Smith was a valued member of Corvettes of San Diego joining June 27, 2011 . He was a very familiar sight to club members, driving his 1966 Milano Maroon, 427 Corvette Convertible on many club runs and out-of-state excursions.
Dave was always available and offered assistance at club events, even when his health was declining. One of Dave's favorite activities was cooking hamburgers on Saturdays at the Escondido Elk's Lodge, where the club meetings are held.
Dave was a great person to know, always smiling, fun to race with on his XBox racing game and interesting to listen to when he shared his knowledge and expertise in engineering.
