David was one of a kind. I've never met anyone like him and most likely never will again. There was hardly an art form he couldn't master...from cooking the most amazing meals, to making jewelry, cutting hair, stained glass, horticulture the list goes on and on. He traveled the world and never met a stranger. He was fearless in his pursuit of adventure and fiercely protective of our planet - committed to recycling & composting and encouraging others to care as he did.

David lived his life completely genuinely. He didn't say what you wanted to hear necessarily...but he always spoke the truth. He lived his truth.

That's not palpable for some people. Not everyone is prepared for blatant honesty. But I guarantee you that even those who were put off by his directness will feel sorrow when they hear he's passed. Like I said...he was completely unique & one of a kind.

Few people live a life with so few pretensions. Most of us worry if we'll be accepted if we act like our true selves. David did not struggle with this predicament.

David was David all the time. Really refreshing in a world where so many pretend to be less than themselves for fear of rejection or judgment.

In his last days he told his family he loved them at every opportunity. When death is eminent all that's really important is love, that we feel it and express it - and he did just that.

You fought a good fight David. We're so proud of you and to have been part of your journey. See you on the other side
