I am so sorry about this. The Mercury News obit was quite incorrect about Sheila, since she was a classmate of mine at Lakeview elementary back in 1955 and '56.  Dave and i were classmates of '63 but ran with a different circle of friends, many of mine lived and went to high schools San Francisco..

David was a world class guy in The Silicon  Valley.  He became President of Quantum in the mid-80s..  In 1991, Quantum passed one of its most important milestones--revenues of over $1 billion. Revenues increased an amazing 50 percent over the previous year, the amount totaling $1.07 billion. With its burgeoning revenues, its focus on quality control, and its efficient distribution network, Quantum was also listed in the ranks of the Fortune 500 for the first time during the same year. Quantum was Apple Computer's leading suppler of disk drives; Apple used the drives in its newly introduced Macintosh Classic and LC desktop computers.

He certainly belongs on the OHS Hall of Fame.
