Was this the same David Fettig with a youtube channel and a video where he demonstrates flipping butterfly knives? If so, someone may have stolen that video and uploaded it to their own channel.
May you soul rest in peace dave
Dave, you were great. It sucks you had to leave at such a young age. RIP.
I'm so sorry.
Like my father, this man took his life of his own accord. We are each given this life, and though I am very sad for his family and friends, this was his decision. He would be happiest if we celebrate his life, and strength, rather than lament the way he chose to leave. It takes GREAT strength to live, but even greater strength to step into the unknown when this life is not for you. David, you will always have my respect and love.
I hope you are somewhere better now, David.
Rest in peace David... You will always live on through memories.
Rest in peace. I hope you have found peace.
While we are mourning the loss of David, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.
Never knowing this man. Seeing his smile on the other side of a computer screen. I do not know what caused the world to balance on your shoulders, but I do know that you were a warrior, strong and true, for carrying that weight up until the end.
Rest easy and in peace, Mr. Fettig. May you live on in the memories of all those you impacted, even those you have never seen or spoken to.
May he rest in peace. He deserved better, yet he worked with the cards that were dealt to him, and he endured pain I couldn't even imagine. I wish his family and friends the best in the future, and I hope David's memory is never forgotten.
Rest easy, brother.
I'm a little late to the party but I hope the pain has escaped.
David you got me messed up bro. I dont even know you but I just heard your story, you got me in tears. I know you feel it was for the better but I miss you and ive never met you. I feel like we could have been good friends. I hope you rest in peace and I really hope it was for the better... Rest well in heaven, David.
Rest in peace David.
There never was a wound that time couldn't fix, other than the wound we don't let it fix.
I didn't know his name 'till now
Nor that he was dead.
I still don't know what his life was like
Or what words he said
But I believe this man was strong
and I pray that he lives on
In memories, and the hearts he touched
Even when he is gone.
Look at that smile, that gorgeous man
We have surely lost a player
It is not often that I go religious
But I wish to raise a prayer.
May this man, rest in peace
And he from now always be
above life's worries, drama, constraints
May he, now be free.
Rest in piece good sir
i didn't know you, but I hope you are at peace sir.
He liked to move it, move it.
I'm so sorry that u hurt like that....peace b with u gentle soul
Goodbye David, I hope you find the peace you have been looking for.
such an hero
His memory will live on. I hope your family and friends will be able to find peace by thinking of the good times they shared with him, and I'm sure there were many.
I'm sorry your final years brought you so much pain. I, nor anyone else, can blame you for your actions. It was your choice to make. Alas, the samsara wheel turns indefinitely. May it guide guide you to a more peaceful existence, now and forever.
Dave, you were a great guy. I'm sure of it.
Rest in peace, Dave. I hope you found eternal happiness in a place where you have to suffer no more. Xo.
It is always sad when someone cant find a way to cope any more. My thoughts and prayers to him and his family.
I can only hope that I will one day have the courage to finally end myself just as you did. Thank you for the inspiration.
May you rest in peace, finally freed from your pain.
Rest in peace David.
rest in peace david. you were a great person
it was a shame you felt so dissatisfyed with life
I didn't know him personally. But after reading through some of the memories here, David seems like such a sweet soul.
I never knew you, but you seem to have been an amazing man. Whether there really is an afterlife or not, I hope you're truly happy now. Your family loves you. Your friends love you. I, as a stranger, love you too.
Just like Ricardo, I never knew you. Got some info on you on the internet, including hearing things in your own words. You touched me deeply, and I felt compelled to help in any way I could, but by the time I had discovered you, it was too late. You will never be forgotten, and you will never be alone.
Never physically knew you. But I have seen you on the internet. You were my inspiration when it came to the art of balisongs. You will be missed.
I remember Dave's smile would light up my class when he walked in. He was intelligent, very funny, and so enjoyable to be around. Mr. Jordan always called him the "Wooly Guy"(I am not sure why), but Dave like it, and the name stuck with us. We would always be smiling about some of the pictures he created on Photoshop. And this was back in the early days when we had one of the few(if not the only) Photoshop programs in the District. Dave was brilliant with computers, but his real gift was his personality.
I still smile when I think about you, Dave.
I worked with David at CUNA and at Doc Sci. He was always so nice and always had a smile on his face. He will be missed.
Dave drove me to my first DocSciU after joining the company. It's hard to believe he's gone.
David worked for me, on the print team, at Genworth Financial. He was a man of many talents with such a sweet spirit. He will be missed by everyone here that knew him.
I had the pleasure to work with David for a short period. He was always fun to be around and my thoughts goes out to all of those who stood him near.
BLASTO! (I always started my chats with him in this manner)What an amazing guy - a real whiz on xPression (our document composition here at work), amazingly talented with photoshop (one of his many talents) and I always asked him to show me some balisong tricks whenever he came East. His presence has been missed here at work and now his spirit will be missed here on Earth.
Thanks Dave for sharing you smile and joyful (more crazy goofy with pranks) outlook on life. Knowing you throughout our Fort Atkinson years was a real treat. You always made IT with Tom Kohl class a blast. You were a friend to all and will be dearly missed.
His smile was amazing, and he had one for everybody.
Whipping stuff animals around Star Cinema during that awful Kevin Sorbo movie.
Driving around in his Impulse (the 1st of several, I think) just *blasting* the Perry Como greatest hits CD.
Worked with him at CUNA on the new clasim system. He was a hoot! Really missed his humor when he left. He was a great guy.
The look on his face when I said I was going to buy Nora a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader outfit....PRICELESS : )
Asking for my daughter's hand in marriage before proposing to her.
Dave and my trip to Yellowstone in the overheating Avenger.
The hidden camera in the smoke detector.
Dave sleeping with Nora sleeping on his chest.
Dave mattered. He impacted the people he loved. Beth can use the wealth of their time together to teach Nora & June about their Dad. Memories can be placed in a special corner of our hearts reserved for him and Dave will always be with us.
Lots of Slushies and a broken guitar.
David was my sweet, wonderful brother. He made me laugh harder than anyone in the world. I love you, Davers.
