My husband and I think of Dr Sugarbaker often throughout the year with great appreciation and gratitude. There are no words that could possibly express what we feel so deep in our hearts. David came to our rescue when our darkest cloud covered our family and friends. Bless David and his family for all they do to help their fellow beings. Truly special angels among us. Thank you!

We just learned of the passing of Dr. Sugarbaker and are indeed heart broken. He saved my husband's life in 2011 and it's because of this incredibly talented and compassionate surgeon that he is still sharing his precious life with me, his family and many friends. We owe so much to his expertise and dedication to thoracic surgery. We will never forget him and will be eternally grateful for his gift to us. Our deepest sympathy to his wife and family. May...

Paz a sus restos! Gracias por escribir un libro de cirugía torácica!

Dr. Sugarbaker's passion for patient care was infectious to everyone around him. It was evident everyday that I worked with him. He provided "hope" for many who had no hope when they arrived in the office. He may be gone, but his Legacy lives on in the tens of thousands of lives he touched, from patients, families, physicians, nurses, anyone who crossed his path. Thank you Dr. Sugarbaker.

Dave was one of my closest friends at Wheaton College. I will always remember him for his passionate Christian faith and unflagging spirit. His friendship is one of the most highly valued experiences of my life.Tom Dahlberg

Over 25 years ago we lost our Dear Father to mesothelioma. Fast forward over 30 years and our family was rocked again with the news that my eldest brother had been diagnosed with the same evil condition.

Just when things seemed hopeless, Dr Sugarbaker entered the scene and my brother was given new life. We thanked God and we will eternally be grateful to the good doctor for helping us keep my Dear Brother in our lives. Peace to the memory of this great healer.

Dr Sugarbaker saved my life when I was a 38 yo father of two that had little hope. 14 years later I am here & will never forget him. His skills as a surgeon were second to none but beyond that he gave me hope & showed me such amazing compassion. I will never forget him walking into my room and saying "the sun continues to shine on you my friend". May the sun shine on his loved ones & please know that I will never forget him & will forever be grateful.
