On Monday, July 17th, the world lost a great father, brother, son, partner, teacher, and friend. Dave Peritz was an amazing man...one who lived simply and fully. Dave was beloved by so many. He was an incredibly proud father to Brandon and Morgan, an amazing partner to Jen, the best brother and son a family could ask for, and a friend to everyone. He was also a wonderful special education teacher at Palmer High School. Dave loved hiking, hockey, music, and adventures. He knew how to live...and wasn't afraid to share his love for life with others. We are doing this collection to start a memorial/scholarship fund fitting for Dave. Dave never cared about money, but he cared about helping others, and we will use any donations for this purpose. Dave was always a relentless advocate for the underdog, and as a close-knit family we will keep his legacy alive.
