It is our sad duty to inform all that David Union died yesterday.

I would guess he might like it said that he went down over northern England after taking a direct hit from a coronavirus missile. He was alone in the aircraft having refused crew because of the dangers of the mission, although messages were relayed by means of a portable radiocommunications device.

My sencere condolences,

I will look back on our times togetter with fondness and a smile, he had a passion about alot of things and could talk for hours.

Althou he did not have much, he was very hospitable when I came to visit. I drank a few beers, he had a few hits of tea and we talked and laughed for hours.

The first time that I came over to Sheffield (with my mate Jack) I had only talked to him on Ventrilo and as a good guest I wanted to bring some traditional Dutch treats, but knowing Chris was diabetic (who we also plan te visit) we brought Frikandellen, Kroketten Mexicanos and the like, all deep-frie snacks (fat but no sugar)
We ended up staying a week and slowly eating our own pressend(we brought a lot), grilled and not fried (Dave dit not have a deep-fry). After that week and much fun later Dave sat down with a shy after a long night and said "No more sausages!"
Good times good stories

May the sun be in your back, your fuel full and your ammo infite,
Fly save Big (cy)Borg

I flew with David on WarThunder for several years as I am a rookie compared to the other members of BoP. I knew him as Nathan Zachary. I found him to be cranky, irritable, and hard to get along with; my favorite kind of person. He had a great sense of humor. He told me he lived in Camden, New Jersey in the late '50s and early '60s near where I lived at the time. He was a very interesting guy and he taught me a lot.
My condolences to his friends and family.
He was a very fine fellow and I miss him very much.

Sincerely,
SnowStoat, also known as Robert Klein
