To Dave's family: Sincere condolences on Dave's passing. We were basketball teammates at Seoul American HS from '78-'80. Dave was one of the funniest, kindest people I met during that time in Korea. Dave always seemed quick to smile and slow to anger. Fair skies and following seas Seoul brother. 'Til we meet again.

David was a friend of mine at SAHS my freshman 77’ and sophomore 78’ years. We had quite a few classes today togather, played golf (well he played golf…not sure what I was doing qualifies), basketball, pool at the teen center, etc. David was a kind, generous, fun loving person with a wicked sense of humor and a mischievous look in his eyes. We laughed allot in those days, that was David’s gift, he could almost always put a smile on your face. I wish that I had stayed more in touch throughout the years but I still have my memories of David. Rest in peace my SAHS Brother. Todd
