Dave died unexpectedly Sept. 26, 2007, while on a business trip in Boston. He lived in Greenwich, Conn., and had a summer home in Sargentville, Maine.
Dave graduated from the Hotchkiss School. At Princeton he was a member of Ivy Club and Navy ROTC. He majored in English and wrote his thesis on Joseph Conrad. After graduation he was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy and served three years, rising to full lieutenant.
After the Navy, Dave earned a law degree at the University of Pennsylvania and then joined the New York firm of Sullivan & Cromwell. From there he went to First Boston Co., where he began an illustrious career in investment banking, specializing in international finance.
At the time of his death he was global alliance representative for North America at IBS Securities, a Tokyo-based bank, and senior adviser to Milbank Roy & Co. of New York.
Dave was active in community affairs and enjoyed bird-hunting and sailing. He was a past commodore of the Bucks Harbor Yacht Club in Brooksville, Maine.
Our deepest sympathy goes to his wife, Ann; his sons, James and Christopher; his daughter Ashley; and the rest of his family.
