    Some of the most fun I had with affiliate launches I was happy to be apart of.

    The Man had charisma.

    Rest In Power.

    If you were fortunate enough to know or have met Dave, you know how amazing of a person he was. Do you have a memory of Dave that you would like to share?

      I just joined CF 2.0 recently, so I don’t have any reference for Dave, but your tribute was a beautiful insight into more of the character behind CF. Thank you for sharing. And thank you for being a lover of God and a lover of learning and serving. I’m thankful to be a part of it.

    Russell, this is a very touching tribute to Dave. I have never had the chance to meet you both in person, but I have been involved with CF since more than a year ago. Dave had this presence that made everybody around him feel happy (at least it’s what I have seen in the videos). He was very passionate about CF and when you announced he stepping up as CEO of CF I was very happy. I always believe that great persons are meant to be attracted to each other and this formula of Todd+Dave+Russell worked out pretty well. I’m sure Dave will be watching with pride all the lives that will continue to be changed with CF’s mission. Thanks for sharing.

    One of the nicest dudes ever. Always smiling and time to say hello even though he had no idea who I was. Told him about our success at a random event when we were coming up and I could just feel “this guy believes in me.” He was proud even though I’m a stranger. True Dad energy all the way. We love you Dave!

    Thank you for sharing that Russell. I never had the opportunity to meet Dave, but when I first came into the ClickFunnels world Dave was the affiliate manager. I was impressed with his energy and like you said he always seemed to have a smile on his face. And even just seeing him from afar through videos & the other crazy things you guys were doing with ClickFunnels you could tell that Dave was a great man. I am thankful you were willing to share some more about who Dave was. It gives me hope to know that such great men like Dave have lived. It gives me hope that it is possible to become something better than I am because of people like Dave who set the example. Thanks again Russell for sharing!

    @russell, I always knew there was something special about you. I have been to several FHL events, I have watched a lot of your content.
    I love the Lord and only want to live for Him.
    I wish we could be best friends. It would be so awesome to hang out and pray for each other.
    God bless you bro.

    To be honest i don’t know Dave or you personally Russel, but after this video i felled compelled to write this:

    If i had to name 1 Marketer in the World to learn from it is you,
    I cannot say how much i benefited from you, your books your courses and so much more,
    but what made you specifically unique is your positive attitude and humbleness and your commitment to the cause..
    But I know that all of this commitment stemmed from a deep faith and cause to help people.

    Thank you Russel

    Obviously what i and others saw right up until this point is more or less only you as the face of all of this,
    we usually forget all of the people behind the scenes.

    but now at least for me i know:

    without Dave there wouldn’t be a Russel,
    there wouldn’t be Clickfunnels,
    there wouldn’t be the trilogy of your books and
    there would not be all of the Courses that you have created.

    For that i am endlessly grateful: thank you Dave and Russel .

    You know i am a Muslim actually and there is no Mormon or Christian that haven’t influenced me more than
    you Russel and by proxy Dave and all of the other People around you.

    For that also [ Alhamdulilah [the praise and thanks is Gods ] .

    But what made this whole thing full circle for me is the Role that you gave Dave as you Friend, Guide, Helper and Ally,
    i also know i am spiritually called to be exactly that and i hope i will be able to do the same in my journey as did Dave for you Russel.

    If Dave was your Guide he was also mine, because you were and still are the Guide i look up to when it comes to Marketing, thank you…

    I know you are not a Muslim, but may Allah [ God ] guide you on your path and help other people as you did help me.
