ABSTRACT The field of reproductive biology lost a leader of immense stature on September 5, 2006 and the scientific community lost a passionate, creative and humble scientist that same day. Dave Garbers has been and will continue to be, remembered by all who were touched by him - family, friends and scientific colleagues. The two of us are very fortunate to have known Dave as a friend, mentor and colleague and are honored to write this tribute to him.
