David Galinsky killed by car

Sally writes about what little we know of David Galinsky’s death at the moment. He was crossing Fordham Blvd at Manning Drive as he tried to make his way to the UNC basketball game, as he had many times in the past, when he was hit by a very fast moving car last night.
David and his wife Maeda were our very near neighbors and good friends.

UPDATE: I see from my log that this entry shows up fairly high on Google Searches for David Galinsky. The News and Observer did a very nice article on David and his life on Friday January 27.
An obituary for David was in Saturday January 28th’s News and Observer.
There will be an informal gathering to remember David and his life on Sunday from 3-5 at the Galinsky’s house. A more formal memorial will be held later.

Sally took pictures at the informal Memorial for David Galinsky.

    Wow, I googled my name and even though my name ends with an “i”, this still showed up. Sorry about the loss

  3. Wow this is my father’s name and I haven’t seen him in 4 years so it was kind of scary for a minute even though a friend of mine used to work with hima few months ago. Very sorry for your loss. Hope he was a better person than my Dad.
