DaveBax - Wincustomize - Stardock

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 by DaveBax | Discussion: Community

I wasn’t going to post anything about myself but thought in time someone may be looking for me. I had and have many friends here on WC for many years. Stardock software and the people here have helped me enjoy many, many years and hours here. Help was always available from asking general questions to skinning.

I have been getting test done on my health for several months on my situation. Turns out I have stage 4 cancer that as spread to different parts of my body. I didn’t delay finding out what my health problem was but it’s a very aggressive cancer and didn’t have early warning signs.

I have several WindowBlinds completed or just about completed that have been done for months. To all the people that have enjoyed my work I want to share my last ones if possible. I will not be in here as I always was thanking everyone every day. Saying that I will check in when I can and I thank you all now from my heart the love I have for everyone.

I can’t tell you when my time will come. Could be a few months yet but only God has that answer. Hospice has me on meds that are helping pain management, coughing and allowing me to do things. Please also know There is a member here that when I do pass my Daughter will call and I asked this person to advise you all when my time has reached the end. I will only be leaving when I can no longer get my second leg out of bed. As long as I can get it out I have no give up and I will be up. I have totally accepted my situation and Jesus Christ has his arms open for me but not calling yet.

Wincustomize and Stardock. People that care. You all rock. Thank you.

Dave –AKA - davebax

I am glad that you decided to make a post about your situation Dave. You have been on my mind a lot. It is difficult for me to find words but everything that I have wrote in email messages I meant. I am also very happy that you have Christ to help you through this very difficult time, He has never failed me once though I have failed Him many times.
I hope you will be able to get those blinds uploaded soon but if not it is understandable.
God bless my friend.

Thanks for letting us know.  I'd been missing you lately.  I do hope everything goes as well as it possibly can.  Thanks for everything you've done.

I don't mean to be overly brief, I just don't want to talk too much.  Take care.

Good of you to post Dave, but very saddening to hear.  So many people with cancer lately, it almost seems like an epidemic.

I hope you have many more months Dave, and may you again see your wife in Heaven when it's time. I am sure she is waiting.

Dave No! Thank you for putting up with all the questions i’ve asked about skinning. You are a good friend and a great asset to this community. You will surely be missed around here. Please stay as long as you can and keep us updated. My prayers go out to you and your family.

Super Dave.  I cannot tell you how much this saddens my heart. You have always been a good guy and an inspiration to me.  The few times we spoke on the phone I could tell you were a good man.

I hope that your remaining time be as peaceful as possible. I will miss you terribly.  


That said, I know you'll be in heaven with your wife, rejoicing and in superb health. No pain, no tears.

You will always be in my heart.  Love you, Dave.

Jeezus Dave ! I feel so bad and sad and so many things right now... I am also happy that you get the care you're supposed to. -It has been an honor to see you grow as a skinner although a little late, and become Master and all that was one of your wishes here on Wincustomize. -I hope things will be as good as they can for you and that you still have a few years left in you. Take care now until next time you get the urge to write a few words or maybe even upload something.

-I wish you all the best !

Check out these two guys on youtube.

Especially Robert Morse.  These guys know what they are talking about and I've been following them myself,

their diet ect.

Have an open mind Dave and take a look.  Both have saved a lot of peoples lives.
