Heard some sad news today that an old friend from school died while descending from the summit of Mount Everest:

Dave Sharp


Rest in peace my friend.

Hello,

My name is Allen Breed, and I'm a reporter for The Associated Press.

First of all, I'm sorry for the loss of your friend David. From all I've heard, he sounds like a remarkable person.

I'm sorry to use this forum this way, but I've been trying desperately to find people who can tell me a little more about David as a young man and climber. I am trying to make him more than an Everest statistic.

I would truly appreciate a note to abreed@ap.org if you wouldn't mind. And, again, I'm sorry for your loss.

Sincerely,

Allen

Allen, sorry for the delayed response. I haven't seen or spoken to Dave in around 17 years and my memories of school life are extremely vague.

All I remember of Dave was that he was intelligent, witty and an all round decent human being.

I don't know that I can offer anything more that would be useful to you.

Regards.
