Condolence & Memory Journal

What I remember mostly about David was his intellect. He loved conversation and the sharing of ideas. Our band, Mosaic came together as musicians but became lifelong friends. Even after we had moved on to other things, we still got together periodically to play poker or just hang out and enjoy each others company.

When you spend that much time together, it is only natural that you talk about everything and David always brought a clarity and perspective to every conversation. I will always regard that period as one of the best times of my life.

David was the first friend I made as a terrified Freshman at my initial Speech and Debate tournament. My performance was not stellar and I think he sensed I needed someone to talk to. Never forgot his kindness.

I have many fond memories of going to the Foghorn in San Jose to dance to the band. So talented.

Gone too soon. Rest in Peace Sir

I have so many fond memories of David. I remember how much he LOVED to take pictures of Julie, from when they were very young until this very year. He always said Julie was beautiful, and often he included me in pictures he took with Julie and I. He was a great photographer and musician. I also remember all the fun wine parties on Julie and David's back patio. David would hide all the wine bottles in paper bags so the guests did blind tastings. He was wonderful announcing winners at the end based on tastings, cost of wine and other details. He was so funny and those parties were so fun! Martin and I actually won one year for a blend we brought. Also, David and Julie and Martin and I enjoyed hiking together. Our June Lake trip just a few years ago was so fun. We hiked all day and ate and drank good wine in the evenings and enjoyed our cabins. We also hiked around and did wine tasting when they came to visit us on the Central Coast. We actually hiked through some creeks the year we had so much rain.
Wonderful memories. We celebrated birthdays eating dinner by the ocean at wonderful restaurants. Martin and David would golf on the course here where we live as well. We will always remember these treasured memories together. We will miss you David. We celebrated Christmas together often, in fact just this past December. David was waving and grinning as our car arrived in front of the house. He was happy to see us and we were happy to see him and enjoy our time with David and Julie. Jennie and Martin

David was such a warm and loving man. He had a huge heart! He sure loved music! I remember watching him play when I was just a kid! He also loved his doggies-Turbo was the last to experience his kindness. I am so sorry for you Julie, I am glad you got to travel together so much and really enjoy life before his decline. We are sending love and prayers your way!

A special and talented man. I didn't know he was an accomplished musician. A really great person blessed with a lovely wife. Gone too soon! Praying you will be comforted by the amazing memories you created with him.

Wow, wish I'd taken lessons from him at Showcase. He will be remembered, even by guys 10 years older in L.G. like me. Look for the beauty in all situations.

David absolutely embodied the Aloha Spirit. I always appreciated his warmth, his many talents, his sense of humor, and his devotion to Julie. I will miss all of these qualities as well as his always-ready smile. Mahalo, David, for sharing your gifts with all of us.

With Aloha,
~Kathy
