KAPPELE, David Peter. David died suddenly and unexpectedly on May 5, 2007 while indulging in one of his passions, cycling. He spent his life as a fierce advocate for those who got the short end of the stick in life. He worked to support those struggling with mental illness and poverty, those who were without homes and sometimes without hope. That was something that David always had in abundance. He was relentlessly optimistic and always willing to listen. David is survived by an enormous circle of caring friends, by his father Peter, stepmother Wendy, and his sister Danielle. His mother Mary went first in 1997. Donations to Dixon Hall in lieu of flowers are greatly appreciated.
