He was one of those friends who you meet rarely during an entire year but once you do it feels like yesterday when you last met them.
David was an excellent academic and manager, with an exceptional ability to handle complex issues in a calm and straightforward manner. I know that his students and his colleagues admired him for his professional but above all for his personal characteristics.
He loved Crete since the very first time he visited us in Heraklion and we have spend some great time together. I will remember our long discussions about our families, his army experience, and our shared concerns about the future of higher education.
I will definitely miss you my friend.
rest in peace -
