Been devastated all day.

Great friend. Lots of amazing memories. Ups and downs but always had each others backs for years. You taught me so much. Glad to call you a great friend and Rest In Paradise. See you on the otherside.

I hope you are looking down smoking the fattest spliff ever like old times.

whatever we can do to help im down…

ugh, so this is so surreal.

Let us celebrate davids life, and the contributions he made to the industry. Let us learn through him, let us never grow complacent when it comes to safety in the lab; we as chemists live our lives with one foot in the grave and one foot in the burn ward. Let his death not be in vain.

It’s never a good thing to see one of our kind go. It’s very unfortunate and saddening and I feel for his family. Rest in Good Sir

This is saddening and terrible. I have some money to put toward a gofund me whenever it is set up.

I have been waiting for an update since rocksteady shared this earlier. So many good people in it, in LA. This hits home. Rest in peace. Met at the glg mjbiz event in Vegas with other legends of Nevada I believe.

Any updates on the survivors and other losses? That’s tough to read.

Three dead. Two in the lab and David got out but suffered severe burns on 90%+ of his body.

The survivors - One in ICU and other in a less critical condition.

Probably only survivor of the accident.
