And exactly what does this have to do with roller coasters?

Especially to those of us who live in Columbus, where Dave started Wendy's and where he held many charitable events.

Columbus residents should go downtown to the first Wendy's (across from the old COSI) to pay tribute with a tasty burger.

I love wendy's, great food, ain't nothing like a double stack with cheese meal, but granted, this is a coaster site and this has absolutley nothing to do with coasters.  I eat Mcdonald's or Burger king before a day at the amusement park, wendy's doesn't have a breakfast menu which they should!!!

I live in Columbus, have been to the first Wendy's, and can say that it is my fav. fast food chain. Dave did a tremendous amount for the community. This is tragic, though his illness has lasted a long time. I think a coaster tribute is in store....."Where's the Beef? - The Ride" :) I miss that commercial!

HUH? answer that one! i mean some people feel this important, and if you dont then DON'T respond!

You know, Despite the off topicness of this post,  I do feel that everyday americans felt comfortable with Dave,  From Hockey to Nascar and Im sure he enjoyed parks too in the day.

Chuck, who will miss the man and the comercials.

the last time i saw dave on tv was when he doing commercials with Darrell Waltrip(retired nascar star) and Ryan Newman(up and coming star who is a rookie this year). I remember dave racing around the track and i thought it was cool.
