David’s life was defined by his dedication to fatherhood, his moral character, his love of travel and adventure, and his unbroken spirit. He was a fierce defender of human rights and justice. In college David worked at the American Civil Liberties Union in college and rescued dogs who were about to be put down in his spare time. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania magna cum laude with a degree in mathematics from the college of arts and sciences and a business degree in Wharton. He went on to graduate law school from Penn as well. His college times on “Locust Walk” were among his fondest memories. As a lawyer, he fought against corruption and corporate greed, representing clients for free when they could not afford legal fees. David lived an adventurous life, traveling to over 20 countries. He read over 50 books on modern China after becoming fascinated by the culture and spent 10 years working/living there. In the city of Shenzhen, he enjoyed sitting outside in the tropical weather at his favorite restaurant Brew, watching the lit up skyline. A creature of habit, he enjoyed finding a place he liked and coming back to spend time there. As a father, he loved teaching his children both about academics as well as social issues. David used to watch the shows American Ninja Warrior, Whale Wars, and Big Brother with his children and he even constructed a replica obstacle course with his son in the woods near their residence (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F22TAfiD7uw). He befriended people from many walks of life, nationalities, and backgrounds. He was loved by many people and he was loved so deeply by those close to him. David always said it is not the years in your life that matter but the life in your years, and his years were filled to the brim with life, impact, love, and humanity.
