I just learned about "Bino's" passing today. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a true Dutch uncle and growing up I thought he was the coolest guy on the block. So many happy memories I have with him. He'll never be forgotten.

Rocco Bianco left a message on March 30, 2020:
I remember the times we would go in a shed behind his house and smoke cigarettes with Mickey, Tim and Dave and then I would get in trouble with my mother because she smelled the smoke in my clothes. My sincere condolences. He was a good childhood friend.

Donna, Lee, Bill and Sandy, please accept my deepest sympathy. We are all in shock at the loss of Davie. He always had a smile and made me laugh ever since first grade. He has lead our class reunions for many joyful years. Our class of 1964 has lost a great friend. Rest In Peace, Davie.

I remember Dave from when he participated in an annual fishing tournament called the Gabby Hayes Memorial Fishing Expedition (check us out at gabbyhayes.net) at Cross Fork, Pa., always on opening day weekend of Pennsylvania trout season in mid-April He always seemed to laugh a lot and make us all laugh. In 1979, when I caught the largest trout as a rookie on opening day, I was anxiously awaiting the awarding of the trophy, called the Gabby. (The person who catches the largest trout on opening day -- always a Saturday -- is declared the winner of our tournament.) But that year, the fishing on opening day was very bad. Among about 12 guys in our camp, only four trout were caught on opening day, and mine was the largest at about 11 inches. That night around the campfire, there was serious discussion about extending the competition into Sunday. But Dave, who was from the Pittsburgh area (as were most guys, but I was from Philadelphia), was adamantly against such breaking of tradition; he noted that I caught the largest trout, as meager as it was, and insisted that I get the trophy. He punctuated his support of me by saying -- this is a direct quote -- "The next thing we know you'll want to take it away from him because he's from Philadelphia!" The laughter after his remark ended the debate, and I was awarded the trophy. At that point, Dave made a friend for life. As the saying goes, one good deed deserves another: The next year Dave caught the largest trout, and I had the honor of presenting the trophy to him.

I am still in shock from hearing the news of Dave's untimely passing. He was always so full of life - especially on his "bike". I don't know how many times he passed our house riding with no helmet and my husband telling him he should be wearing one. Dave always answered, "I'll be fine". He was a treasured friend who always had a smile and hug - love ya, Dave - Rest In Peace

I am saddened by Dave’s passing. I grew up with Dave and his brothers, and I got to know his dad who I liked very much. He always had a good story or a joke to tell. The Rubino’s were some of the best people in our neighborhood.
