He worked as a photojournalist for several years, then found his first job in education at Collin County Community Colleges. He became a Program Coordinator at Eastfield College in 2001 and taught digital media there for almost 20 years.
David is survived by his daughters, Sidney (22) and Savannah (18); his father, Richard, and stepmother, Patty Danforth of Sandia Park, NM, his brother, John of Los Alamos, NM, his brother James in Fort Collins, CO, and his stepfather Barry Bryan of Carrollton, TX. He was preceded in death by his mother, Betty Bryan.
No services will be held, but those who wish to remember David are asked to make a donation to the general scholarship fund of Eastfield College in his name. His wishes were to have his ashes spread on the beach and into the water off the point at Pemaquid, Maine to eventually join his mother, father, stepfather and brothers.
