Remembering Dave Burton
Author: TonyJ

After posting some of my slides this morning I checked the date on my TEHACAHAPI 2005 wall calendar. The May photo is another one of Dave Burton's gems and I thought of some of Dave's color slides.

Many of you knew Dave, and that he passed away very unexpectedly last November. I first met Dave in 1987 (I think) and a few friends and I were with him about three weeks before his passing. Over the years we traded slides, videos, tall tales and so on. In rememberance of a good friend to all I'll share eight of Dave's color slides. I chose these because he took them out of his normal territory. The captions are from what Dave wrote on his slides. Enjoy!

The first slide if Erie Mining #4212 at Dunka Jct. on June 18, 1992 at 4:15 pm.

I spoke to his daughter last night and she wants to do a Tehachapi calendar in his memory for 2006.

Two for me also. With so many dirtbags on the planet, why do the good guys have to go young?

Right now Dave is home with Helen and God. I doubt he's complaining and I look forward to being back with them. - Tony J.
