A life full of curiosity about the world around him and a love of learning describe him best. Dave moved to Georgia as a child and spent the rest of his life living in the Atlanta area. He was Georgia state science fair winner in high school. During high school in the fifties he and his father built an electric car which he drove to school. Already an early start on creativity and ingenuity. He received a BS degree from Emory in mathematics and later returned to school for a masters degree from Georgia Tech.

Marriage and a family of four children dominated his life. He was developing his interest in music and was known to sit at the top of the stairs at night, playing guitar and serenading his children to sleep. A second marriage added two additional children to his life. The final count is two sons, two daughters, two stepdaughters, six grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

Dave went on to learn the banjo, switching to autoharp when his hands were unable to play the banjo any longer due to rheumatoid arthritis. He became a master at playing the mouth harp. His growing interest in music lead him to become a member of the Bear on the Square Music Festival Committee in Dahlonega. He worked tirelessly for Bear, being host of the workshop tent and providing his own sound system for the festival and to musicians who needed someone to provide them a sound system. In addition to the festival he provided the sound for the monthly Mountain Music Medicine show and the monthly Strings and Things Coffee House sponsored by the Wiggins Group. He loved to be a part of the local Saturday jam on the square in Dahlonega.

He was a woodturner and loved working on the lathe. Taking classes at John C Campbell Folk School and Arrowmont. He was always learning. He also went to Lanier Technical School to take carpentry classes so he could be a part of building his house in North Georgia.

Dave with wife, Sherry, was very involved in the Brewster Kaleidoscope Society. An organization for artists, collectors, and gallery owners who together shared their love of kaleidoscopes. He had a great interest in computers and worked for Southern Company Services as a computer programmer. Dave had computer systems set up at home and as a big weather buff, he had a weather system in his back yard. Connected of course to his computer.

In Dave fashion, there are no services planned, A celebration of life to include a music jam to send him on his way will occur with details to be decided.

A life well lived. His presence in our lives will be forever missed.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
