Dave’s niece Devon will arrange for his creamation & we will have a memorial in the spring in New Paltz. His ashes will be scattered in the Gunks. If anyone wants to brin some to a particular place, that’s he awesome. The rest will be brought up to Mt. Marcy to be scattered with Stephen’s remaining ashes to join where their sister Jenny’s & mother Barbara’s ashes have been left. Thank you all for these stories. We will remember Dave in his prime. He reached his dream at a very young age.
I confess I had named a climb after Dave and changed the name. Gotta change it back now------Dave was indeed a pretty a pretty cool guy to hang out with, if you had a problem he always had some insights that would bring you back to reality. But the reality of the situation (climbing is not all its cracked up to be) made him board. RIP Dave.
