Ah, David, truly one of my oldest and dearest friends, fare thee well. We first met in our freshman year at St. Mary's, playing football and basketball and becoming buddies, and creating those unforgettable moments in JV basketball during the 1970-71 season. Then on to Colorado State, where we became closer and more mystical in our explorations of the universe. Many hours were spent pondering the meaning of it all, and how we fit in, and what we were here for. After college, we continued to stay in touch, and would re-convene frequently to discuss the new truths we had learned--you through spiritual pilgrimages to India, Ireland, and beyond, your silent retreats in Texas, and your work with the monks in Snowmass. Me, through the workaday world and fatherhood, and later, grand fatherhood. Always in tune, we distilled our experience into our own kind of wisdom. We played a lot of music together, too, playing guitar and harmonica and creating a genuinely one-of-a-kind sound (ha). Then came Dee--as you told me many times, the best thing to ever happen to you. I'm so glad you had the gift of her love after so many years of solitude. More recently, we continued to correspond and track the progress of the Broncos and Nuggets, our aches and pains, and as always, our speculations about this life and the next. All those questions, all those ideas, all those unknowns. Well, now you know, brotha'. Now you know. Pax out. Jeff Doud

What is your favorite memory shared with David?

David and I went to Ireland in 1979. Here is how it came about. . I was at the YMCA downtown Colorado Springs just finishing up the challenge handball court. I was in the steam room when David came in. We started talking what we have been doing and what was going on about our lives. David then mentioned he was going to Ireland in March. I asked who he was going with? He said nobody. Then he said I should come with him. I didn’t hesitate and said sure. So we flew over to England and took the ferry to Ireland. On the ferry we drank a lot of beer and played the slot machines. Didn’t win anything but still had fun. We made it to Ireland after 8 hours off rough sea. When we got off the Ferry it was a warm sunny day. The previous weeks it had been cold and rainy. We walked towards town with our backpacks on. We had smallAmerican flags on our backpacks. Our goal was to hitch hike across Ireland. So while we were walking into town people would say something to us but we didn’t quite understand what they were saying to us because of the accents. This happened six times from different people and they all were saying the same thing to us. Finally we understood what they all were saying from the seventh person. THANKS FOR BRINGING THE SUN YANKS. David and I had so much fun in Ireland. David will be missed. Tom Boyle

David was a dear and faithful friend. We met in 1990 in the Springs, and David introduced me to Centering Prayer. We worked together on his projects and talked about faith, God and what it means to live well. I wish you peace and all good, my friend.
