An Attorney and Vietnam Veteran, Dave was a charming, humble and empathetic presence in the lives of all who knew him. Dave listened and cared. Most everyone who met Dave came away with both a greater appreciation for something new and at least one book. His greatness lay in his natural attention to the world around him and those in it. The rare man who was as comfortable with hot dogs at Wrigley Field as he was at the Chicago Symphony. Dave mingled interests in fine arts, sports, history, world travel, cuisine and voracious reading in a rich and varied life. Dave concentrated on the good things in life and when his many friends were with him, they tended to concentrate on them as well.
