JD died Sept. 28, 2023, at his home in Tuscaloosa, Ala., after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
JD came to Princeton from Naples (Fla.) High School. He roomed with Ron Landeck, Dave Sonnenberg, and Joe Luongo, and played football. He left Princeton sophomore year for financial reasons.
His classes at a Florida junior college, Mercer University, and the University of Florida produced an undergraduate degree in math. He went on to earn a medical degree at the University of Tennessee.
In 1977, JD and his wife, Pam, moved to Tuscaloosa, where he opened the area’s first dialysis clinic while Pam earned a law degree. His busy professional life included service as head team physician for the University of Alabama football squad.
Despite leaving Princeton early, JD remained a loyal and active member of the Class of 1966, attending major reunions, contributing to Reunions yearbooks, staying in contact with classmates, and participating in the Masked Man project. He had planned to attend our Hilton Head reunion in October.
The class extends its heartfelt condolences to Pam and daughters Marisa and Amanda.
