Our sincerest sympathy goes out to you at David's sudden passing. What a tragedy for you. We will keep you in our hearts.
Sue and Ricky,
I was shocked to learn yesterday evening that David had passed away.
I remember seeing him often at Bell School and Charter events, larger than life and obviously so proud of his talented son.
My deepest sympathies are with you at this tremendously difficult time.
Lorna Perkins and David, Kevin, and Glenna Joyce
I was shocked to hear tonight of David's passing, and I will sorely miss his big smile in my Spinning class. May the wind be at his back, and may he forever ride strong.
As I sit here thinking about our time on the water with David, I feel compelled to add, David was brilliant, but understated and without ego ... a tremendous combination of qualities and what made him so adoring.
I am both shocked and so sorry to hear of David's passing. I sailed for David when he first moved to Marblehead on his Mumm 30 quite a few years ago. David slid me into a role on the boat and had the patience to school me until I dialed in. His kindness and confidence in me helped leverage me and enabled me to go on to bigger programs once he sold off his boat. That experience was not only invaluable but we also had a hell of a good time. It was always a pleasure sailing with Dave. He was a true gentleman thru and thru.
