The Passing of Austin Dale Moore

The Passing of Dave Myers

SSP_Dave MyersAdded Oct. 13:

From John Wesseling

Added Oct. 13:
I let many of you know who asked that I would share Dave’s Funeral arrangements as soon as I got them.

Sad to say, it seems that October is a busy month  for funerals.

So the Memorial Service will be Sunday October 18th from 3-5pm at Vitt and Stermer, 4619 Delhi Rd.

The funeral mass will be the next day at 11:00 AM at Our Lady of Victory 810 Neeb Rd in Delhi.

Please keep his family and his theatre family in your thoughts!


I just got the word that we lost Dave Myers at 3:00 this afternoon [10/10]. He lost his 6 year battle with Cancer. This is a sad day for all of us who knew and loved him!

While he was not the founder of Sunset, In many ways he was the foundation of Sunset. Especially tech wise.

As many of you know he was my friend and de facto big brother ( As well as Mike Burke’s and Jerry Yearout’s). For me that relationship lasted over 50 years. Many of the good things that I am today come from Dave’s influence on me.

Sunset’s reputation as a tech group comes from his incredible talents and how he shared them and trained all of us around him.

But most of all, he was an incredible wonderful person and a gentle soul who would help anyone who needed it. If you are a person who prays, please pray for Dave and his family.

His loss will leave a hole at Sunset which will be impossible to fill!

I’ll let everyone know the arrangements when I find them out.

Best to you all!

The Passing of Linda Getz

From the Greater Hamilton Civic Theatre Facebook page:


It is with a heavy heart that GHCT bids farewell to one of our long standing members, Linda Getz. Linda lost her courageous battle with cancer on Sunday, August 23, 2020.

Linda was an active member of Greater Hamilton Civic Theatre for over 35 years. She had served several terms on the GHCT Board of Directors and took on a variety of tasks including the organizing of the 25th Anniversary backstage reception after the opening night of A Thurber Carnival in 1983.
Linda made her stage debut in The Man Who Came to Dinner in 1982. It was a small part but just large enough for her to conclude that her talents were better used backstage. From that point on Linda became one of the finest and most sought after producers that GHCT ever had. Her work ethic, organizational skills and her ability to bring a professional shine to the productions made her a director’s dream. She took her work seriously but not so seriously that she didn’t enjoy the process. In fact, one of the things that most of us will remember about Linda is her infectious laugh. What a great memory that is.

So as we come to the end of our journey together we say thank you Linda for all you did to make us look good. You were one of the best.
