One thought on “David Coleman ’72”

  1. I was not only a classmate of David’s, I was also his roomate for a semester during my first year at Williston in 1969. We also shared Doc Steven’s English class that year and next. David had a probing mind. He did not accept conventional thinking. He did not do what we used to call “parrotting the professor.” He excelled in sports and had an older brother (Arthur) whom I spoke to many years later when we sat together during the 2002 reunion banquet. Although I had an older brother who visited periodically from NYC on weekends, David had the definite advantage of an upper-class sibling who taught him the ropes. It occurs to me now that is why David appeared smooth and confident as a freshman while many of us lacked that quality. His untimely death at age 60 comes as a shock. I express my sincere condolences to his family.
