Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear this news. David re-voiced and/or repaired 4 violins for me from 2006 - 2009. Great results with all four. I always enjoyed David's company and conversation with every meeting we had. Wonderful intellect, composer and musician. David allowed me to handle and play some of his most valuable instruments, creating a wonderful experience for me. He will be sorely missed.

David did a FINE job restoring my Grandfathers' 128 year old violin! My family and I have had the privilege of watching him re hair a couple of bows-Very interesting. We also loved his dog Hammie. Our thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and Hammie and the family.

We celebrate the life of a truly unique genius. David's vision of the world was his alone but for those of us who loved him, he opened up unexpected vistas. His ability to communicate through the language of music was a gift to us. Whether we were admiring a Porsche carburetor or an 18th century stringed instrument, his enthusiasm was contagious. His photo has been displayed prominently (playing the cello he found for Jim) in our home and always will be. Farewell, dear friend.
