He started as a general and vascular surgeon at St. Luke's Hospital in 1974, and was planning to retire June 30th... David was a voracious reader and lover of classical music, gardening, American history, and all things Abraham Lincoln. In addition to his beloved wife of 42 years, Sandy, he is survived by his children: David, Jr. (Katherine), Lisa, Michael, Stephanie (Christopher), Jennifer, and Tracy (Dean); his sister, Diane (Ed), and sister-in-law, Benna (Richard). He leaves behind twelve grandchildren: Michael, Daphne, Noah, Ellie, Madison, Hariett, Isabelle, Ben, Zach, Albert, David, and Lillian.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2018, from 4-8pm at Bopp Chapel in Kirkwood. The family plans to hold a celebration of life at a date undecided.
