Dave came from the Landon School and majored in mechanical engineering. He joined Tower and was a squash manager and a cheerleader. He roomed with John Laupheimer, Colden Florance, Harry Zehner, and Bill Brereton.

After graduation Dave went to the auto industry and was sent by GM to the Redstone Arsenal, where he worked with Wernher von Braun. He earned an MBA from Columbia and turned to finance, working as a securities analyst for Fiduciary Trust, E.F. Hutton, and other Wall Street firms’ research departments. He invested — with success — in the Clinton Oil Co.

Dave died Dec. 15, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Mary; and children David Jr., Logan, and Ann. To them, the class sends good wishes and sympathy.
