Moth Savannah Shellhole was saddened  to hear Moth Dave Strauss passed away as a result of a suspected heart attack on Saturday 29th December 2018, while on holiday in Cape Town. Moth Dave has been a very loyal supporter of Savannah, long before he joined. He only joined in March 2018 and proved to be a great Moth with a lot of potential. He served in the military as a Ops Medic, of which he was very proud. We are all very shocked that this young man, only 48 years old, has answered the sunset call. Our condolences to the family and friends.

We will remember him.
