Published in Dec. 4, 1991, issue

DAVE DIED of cancer Aug. 13, 199 1. Three months earlier he had happily given his daughter Corey away at her wedding. His immediate family also includes a daughter, Catherine, and Nancy, his former wife and close friend.

After attending Lawrenceville School, Dave served as a military policeman with the Army occupation forces in Japan, then attended the Loomis School, whence entered Princeton with our Class. He was an English major and a member of the 21 Club, the Right Wing Club, and of Tiger Inn. He roomed with Doc Crane and Andy Leh.

After graduation Dave taught English at the Arizona School for Boys in Tucson, then worked in advertising for Young & Rubicam's Los Angeles office. In the mid-60s he returned East to Y. & R. in New York. More recently he had been associated with Medmark & Mission, a marketer of medical equipment in Metuchen NJ. He lived in Fords, NJ.

The Greens have been one of Princeton's most prolific alumni families. In addition to numerous uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, there were Dave's father, Robert '13, and brothers, Jim '41 and John '42. Along with his daughters and former wife, he is survived by brothers Robert Jr. '40, Charles '47, and Bill '63, and his sister Louise.

Dave will be remembered for his quick wit, offbeat sense of humor, and his devotion to his family.
