Dr. David C. Wilcox

AGE: 72 • Lake Arrowhead, CA

Dr. David C. Wilcox of Lake Arrowhead, CA died on February 24, 2016 at the age of 72. Dave was born January 12, 1944 in Wilmington, DE and was the son of the late Robert L. Wilcox and Helen (Miller) Wilcox. He graduated from Mount Pleasant High School in 1963, and received his Bachelor's Degree from MIT in 1966. Ultimately, he would go on to graduate from Caltech in 1970 with a Ph.D. in Aeronautics and Astronautics -a true "rocket scientist." Dave was a recent transplant to the Lake Arrowhead community. He loved his beautiful new home overlooking the lake. Although his time there was short, he had finally achieved all of his lifelong dreams.

In addition to his wife, Barbara (Gagliardino), Dave is survived by his brother Robert and wife Maureen; his daughter Kinley and husband Patrick; his son Robert and wife Valentina, and his four grandchildren Nikalette, Shane, Charlotte and Carolina who he adored.

Dave will be remembered as a witty and brilliant man who endeared himself to everyone he met. A memorial will be held this summer to honor the life of this great man.
