So sad to have a heart condition and die at such a young age.
Hey Paul - I don't know if you remember me, but I was running laps that day, too. I vaguely recall the teacher (yeah, I forget his name - we weren't great pals)... yelling something like "C'mon Turner - get up, you goldbrick!" as people ran by David. In his defense - he did attend to him right away - but there was nothing to be done. We knew nothing about congenital heart defects before that....we were just kids. I was just telling my 13 year old about this the other day.
I seem to remember the gym teacher that day was Tom Walsh. His picture is in the Yearbook. I wasn't in the class but I recall hearing that's who was on the field when David collapsed.
My memory of David was in middle school he had a leading role in the "Mikado." Such a nice voice.
I'm so sorry to learn of the passing of David Turner. We really did not know each other very well, but he and I were in the same math class. I believe that
Mr. Walsh, one of the finest teachers I ever had, was our teacher that year when we were juniors. I remember him as a kind and friendly lad with an
irrepresible sense of humor. I never saw him again after our graduation, but I have fond memories of him as my classmate. May he rest in peace.
