David was a dharma star in my life, as a young meditator, David was an example of the kindness and equanimity I hoped to cultivate. After many years of practice, I suspect he was simply born with that way. We spent many a retreat together, and coordinated several as well. He and Kathy guided Ajahn Geoff’s visit to Twisp, aware that I hadn’t a clue about the care and feeding of monastics on road trips. Its still kind of embarrassing how much I didn’t know.
I am so very grateful, through all of David’s forms of service, he touched many people’s lives, I am honored to be one of them.
My sincere condolences to David's family. A fine man and loving human being. His physical presence is sorely missed.
My dear Kathleen,
We were shocked to hear about the loss of our dear friend. It is with great sadness we are writing to you to let you know that we are with you in our hearts sharing your grief. He was a great example for all of us as a kindhearted practicing Buddhist. We have a great respect for him and you. We know he has shortened his journey in Samsara. May David attain the bliss of Nibbana!

David was one of the kindest human beings I have ever met. He will be missed by so many. Heartfelt condolences to Kathy and other family members. Will be thinking of you all.
I met David volunteering for the Northwest Dharma Association, and watched him steer the organization while running the office, for years. I'm really sad to lose David. His warm friendliness and quiet dignity was a great inspiration to me and so many others. His steady encouragement and wise counsel will be missed.
LaTanya and I give our deepest and sincere condolences to David’s family in their time of loss. We like to in spirit celebrate David’s life and he was a light in our community serving his community as a Volunteer. Before David’s passing, He changed his Thursday shift to a Sunday shift as a Centennial Station Volunteer (Amtrak Lacey/Olympia Station) serving with me. In that short time, we became fond of each other enjoying each other’s traveling experience. As I, he utilized and experienced all forms of travel including rail, air, etc.; we both learned from each other on how to navigate this world of ours getting from point A to point B. We, volunteers at Centennial Station, will definitely miss David.
Mr. David was the first person I volunteered with when I signed up. He was always kind and a good mentor. He also shared a lot of life lessons about patience and being a good spouse, as he often talked about his lovely wife. Thank you Sir, it was always an honor to have known you.
I will miss seeing you at the train station David.
David was a Volunteer at the Olympia/Lacey Amtrak station. The station opened in May of 1993, had no Amtrak agents or employees and was completely staffed every day from 8:00am till 9:30pm by Volunteers. He worked the Thursday evening shift and will be greatly missed at the station where he has been a very valued Volunteer for the past 12 years. His service, willingness to help others, and energy were a great asset to all at the station, fellow Volunteers, passengers waiting for trains, and visitors waiting for friends or family to get off of a train.
May God bless you David and may you rest in peace.
My cousin, David, was loved by many, and will be missed by just as many!! I will always remember him as a great cousin with a loving heart!! The family was always amazed at his love of trains and his ability to commit to memory the complicated schedules of all the trains on the Eastern Seaboard. We have lost a great loving spirit, and my sympathies go out to his brother Bud, and sister, Jeannie!! We love you, David!!
