One of the best things I was fortunate enough to take away from my 15 or so years in front office work with the Pats, Bruins and Boston Garden was the special relationships I was lucky enough to have with so many of the Boston and New England press --
in appreciating that even in more recent years, it's easy to remember that Dave was surely one of those at the top of the list -- to his family, sincere regrets at his passing -- Jack Nicholson, Auburn, Mass

I had the honor and privilege of meeting Dave twenty five years ago when I was working for the Boston and Winter Haven Red Sox. He was a man of enormous integrity, character, and class. He had many friends throughout the county, but had established deep friendships with many of the Winter Haven residents. He was a very kind, generous,and giving man. When you met Dave, you liked him immediately.....his laugh, smile, and sense of humor was infectious.
During the Korean War, he served with honor, distinction, and courage. He was very proud having served his country and receiving the Combat Infantry Badge. He had a deep and abiding faith that carried him throughout his life. I, as well as, many people feel enriched having know him, and will be deeply grateful knowing he made a positive difference in many lives. He was a true friend and I thank God for having known him.

May He Rest In Peace.

My first job was as a freelance assistant to Dave, when I was 18 years old. I lied about my age and he later told me, "Don't worry, I was 15 when I went to work for the AP and I lied about MY age, too." Dave was a great mentor, friend and after-work companion as he allowed me into his circle of media veterans and front office executives. I learned a lot and benefitted from introductions made with the O'Hara Seal of Approval. Deb, my deepest sympathy to you, your siblings and the entire extended family.

Dave and I go back to his days of covering the Red Sox in Winter Haven. I admired him and envied some of the assignments he had. I asked him often about covering the Milwaukee Braves, the Lombardi Packers and of course the Red Sox. Among other good things, he was a resource and always helpful when I asked for information. He was quite a professional with a good sense of humor, and I can hear his laugh right now.
