  1. David was always such a warm loving man. I always admired him for sending all of those Christmas cards to all who attended Trinity. His presence will be missed.

  2. David was always so sweet whenever I saw him. He was particularly thoughtful in expressing his fondness and memories of my Mother, Barbro, his lifelong friend. His parents married my parents and having a Scandinavian background was that common thread that evoked many discussions. His gentle spirit and kindness will always be remembered.

  3. I met David through his interest in sports, which I covered on local radio during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. He was truly .Mr. Yale Usher,. since he was always visible at the Yale Bowl, basketball court, and other venues where he proudly and seriously served as a volunteer usher for many years. A great fan of Yale sports, he knew many of the athletes and coaches personally, and they responded to him in a way that made him feel very important. David seemed to know almost everybody in our generation, and he would go out of his way to greet us by name, even if he was across the street. He seemed to accept his limitations very well so that he was able to lead quite a satisfying and productive life.

  4. David was a very wonderful man. He sent us a Christmas card every year from the time we served at Trinity, then when we went to seminary, served in Minnesota, and now in Illinois. I am grateful for the encouragement he was to me and my family. Truly, He was God’s instrument to demonstrate genuine friendship and Christian love. He has been missed this Christmas season out here in Illinois.
