  2. My most heartfelt sympathy to you in the loss of your husband and father. Many years ago, I worked with Dave at Georgia Tech’s Industrial Development Division, and rejoiced with him as he climbed the ladder of success in economic development, culminating in a distinguished career at Oglethorpe Power. I also enjoyed his fun-loving sense of humor and kindness to his fellow workers. He was a fine man, who left many fond memories among those who knew him through the years.

  3. Laurel, I am deeply sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I know the pain and grief you are all dealing with. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family during this very difficult time. God Bless You, Theresa West

  4. David taught me so much while at Oglethorpe Power, and about GA, and about life. He was really terrific, one of the best people I’ve been lucky enough to ever know.

  5. I was sad to learn of Davids’s passing. He was an advisor and mentor to me and many others in economic development. While serious, his sense of humor was always near the surface. His Christmas parties were particularly fun events. David is remembered most fondly and will be missed.

  6. Laurel, I am sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and may you have the strength to deal with this difficult time and Take Care.
    Renuka and Mahesh

  7. David was a very nice person. The best boss I ever had. I remember David opening up his home and hosting with Linda some great Christmas parties. He made Georgia a better place to live through his economic development work. We will certainly miss him.
