David, a native of Buffalo, N.Y., died Oct. 27, 2022.

He came to Princeton from the Nichols School. He joined Charter Club, majored in chemistry, and wrote his thesis on “A Synthesis of Dehydroabietic Acid.” He returned to Buffalo to attend the University of Buffalo Medical School, and it was there that he met and married Carolyn, his partner for more than 65 years.

David began his medical career in the Endocrine Fellowship Program at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he subsequently joined the faculty. Family and home, however, pulled David, Carolyn, and their toddler, Julie, back to Buffalo, where he became a professor of medicine at Buffalo Children’s Hospital, establishing and heading a diabetes program treating patients and training residents.

In 1977, David moved to West Hartford, Conn., where he was appointed director of medicine at St. Francis Hospital and professor of medicine at the UConn Medical Center, and created a dramatically larger faculty and full-time staff. Later he created and ran a clinical service to care for patients with blood lipid disorders and continued as professor of medicine at the UConn School of Medicine.

David is survived by his wife, Carolyn; his daughter, Julie; his son, Peter; and six grandchildren.
