During his time at Baylor back in the 1970s, David touched the lives of many. He was a dedicated and enthusiastic member of KOT. After trying a brief stint in sales in Dallas, he returned to Baylor and served faithfully as sponsor of KOT for many years before continuing his career at Cooper Union in New York and the University of San Diego. He truly impacted the countless students, faculty, and staff that he interacted with daily during his professional careers.
After his retirement to San Diego, he continued enjoying his friends and following his passions of world travel, gardening and being a loving husband. David’s greatest joys were his relationship with his Lord and Savior, husband, family and friends. He passed away in the February 2018. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure of loving and knowing him.
