Dear Marie, Amy, Beth, Rachel, Jessica, Toby and David,
Please know that I was saddened to read about "Mr. Warden" in the Marblehead Reporter a few weeks ago, but at the same time, my heart was filled with happy and humorous memories of that time long ago when we were neighbors on Beach Bluff Avenue. My heart goes out to you all - David was a very special man. I always enjoyed his wry humor about the shenanigans going on with all the kids that filled your house.
I see my dad signed this guest book below - you all mean a lot to my family.
Marie and family: Dave was a great person - a great man who will be missed by all who knew him. He was not just a student-athlete, he was a scholar athlete. He served on the Lynn School Commitee in 1965 when I was elected a principal to serve at Lincoln School. We kept in contact over the years. He will be greatly missed.
Dear Marie, Amy, Elizabeth, Rachel, Jessica, Toby, and David, and your families,
Dave was one of our family, one of Bob's closest friends. He and Marie brought measureless joy and depth to my parents' lives and by extension to our family. Dave was an inspiration to me -- a regular guy, a civic activist, a reformer, a family man, a dignified professional, soft spoken, and influential. I am sorry at his passing and the loss to marie and you all. He was loyal and present to Helen during her final years, when he and Marie would drop by. She hated to be seen by company, but always was energized by their visits and was happy to see them. I send Marie love to live with this additional loss, and know you will find inspiration and learning in the legacy you will keep on discovering that your father left you. Brian Powers, San Francisco
jean and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. I am at our home in Naples Florida and Jean returns from a trip to Europe on Saturday. i know that David and you were always favorites of my family. Your beautiful family reflected the love, intelligence, and kindness that their parents taught them. Roger Rotondi
Dear Marie, Amy, Beth, Rachel, Jessica, Toby and David. We were very saddened to hear about Dave. I looked at all the pictures on the site and wonderful memories were brought to mind. Your kindness and attention to our family were never forgotten. From your old neighbors and friends June and Mickey Cohen, Matt, Andrea and Johanna. Our thoughts are with you.
