I just found out of Ack’s passing. He was one of the “good guys”!. I will miss bantering w/him about our beloved Mountaineers.
Ack truly loved his family, and his Mountaineers.
There is a void in my and my wife’s heart!
Ack would always admonish me for referring to my better half as “the warden”. I will surely miss him!

Dave was my backyard neighbor. He grilled out and worked on his yard – even last week. The neighborhood was sad to hear of his passing.

Dave Ackerman was a teammate of mine at Central. I called him Ack Ack. I think he liked that. He loved our Class of 66′ @ Central and I always looked forward to sharing stories with him about our days @ Central. I will miss him but I will keep him in my thoughts. My sincere condolences to his family. Joe Basil
