We lost a dedicated physician and popular classmate when David Richardson died May 5, 2019, in Portland, Ore., from non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, a rare, rapidly progressive liver disease.

Dave came to Princeton from Columbia High School in Maplewood, N.J., following his late father, who was a member of the Class of ’38, and his brother, who was a member of the Class of ’67. Dave brought with him a love of music and sailing. He majored in chemistry and was social chair at Charter. He roomed with Sokler, Uehlinger, Moffat, Baine, and Greene in Little Hall senior year.

Dave graduated from Baylor Medical School, where he married classmate Miriam Mills. They had two sons, whom they nurtured through significant health problems. After residency in ob/gyn at Baylor, Dave was in private practice in Tulsa from 1979 to 1998. He was always a staunch supporter of women’s health and reproductive rights.

After divorce in 1989, he married Pam Allen in 1991. Dave had three years of experience in academia but preferred patient care, so he resumed private practice. He developed health problems in 2002 and retired from medical practice, first to Dallas and then to Portland in 2011. Dave and Pam enjoyed their lives together, the beauty of the Northwest, and traveling, including trips with John and Karen Moffat.

To Pam; sons Bryan, Patrick, and Jonathan; grandson Cooper; and other family and friends, the class extends its condolences.
