Sadly, early Monday morning, April 15, 2019, David passed away peacefully after a short battle with numerous adverse reactions to his cancer therapy. Throughout, he was convinced he would be back and he would prevail. We will miss him immensely for his kindness, friendship, and dedication to his life-long love of sharing the wonders of cinema with everyone he ever came in contact with: from the cabdriver to the cineaste.
Today, Tuesday, the marquee of the Coolidge Corner Theater will be changed in tribute to him at 6 P.M., if you wish to attend.
There will a wake on Tuesday, April 23 from 6-9 P.M. at the Bell-O'dea Funeral Home at 376 Washington St, Brookline, MA.
The funeral mass will be held Wednesday, April 24, at 11 A.M. at at St. Cecelia's Church at 18 Belvidere St, Boston, MA 02115.
Another memorial event is also being planned for the near future.
