The Rev. Anne Sawyer at the adjacent St. Mark's Church in-the-Bowery told us that she had a fond memory of hosting a 70th birthday party for David on the church property last year. "He asked if we could have a BBQ, so we did," she said, noting that she didn't have any other details on this passing at the moment.
"I would be happy to host a celebration of life or memorial for anyone who would like to gather," she said.
