Road to College Golf

David, Dave, Dad, Daddio, Pops, Grandpa, Grandpa Dave, Papa G, Gleason could be heard from all of us who knew David W. Gleason. He was our leader and is our hero. He never met a stranger and certainly looked at everyone he met from the inside out, not the outside in. He preached core values of integrity, truth and how important a man's "word" was to another man. He touched you with his smile and had a sincere interest in what you were about, but certainly did not refrain from sharing his opinions. His time professionally was filled with passion, commitment, dedication and getting resolution on all issues. His time as a human being was dedicated to his wife, Janet, children, grandchildren, family and friends. He was passionate about family, golf, cards, and politics and wasn't afraid to talk about those with anybody. Mesothelioma did not defeat his spirit rather it propelled him to an even greater perspective that he shared with all of us which he articulated as "joy", "love", "forgiveness", "don't let things go unsaid", being "thankful" for your blessings and "hope" that tomorrow would come. He will be missed everyday and his legacy will continually be one of inspiration to us all.
