"The gift is ours to borrow"!!!



I met David in High School. Through mutual friends. We became friends when I returned from Viet Nam. We shared a lot of good times in the cellar on Sylvan St. You will be missed terribly David, but your talent will live forever in the children you shared the joy of dance with.

Again! 5-6-7-8!
I had the pleasure of knowing and working with David as his Music Director on a few shows.
Thrilled he received the Lifetime Achievement Award last June at the Majestic Theater, West Springfield, MA.
A talented man whose life was cut to short.
Rest in Peace, David.
