We Love David Coonce and his Family

Our friend David Coonce — dad, writer, sweetheart, punk rocker, and culinary master — passed away suddenly this week. He leaves behind his adored son, Abe; his girlfriend Erica; his ex wife Kate; his mom, dad, and sister; and legions of friends and admirers. He was one-of-a-kind — a sensitive soul with a wicked sharp intellect, excellent taste, and a great sense of humor. His passing leaves this town diminished.

If you are able, please consider making a donation. All proceeds will go to any expenses associated with the end-of-life arrangements, and to help out Abe Dougherty-Coonce, who lights up any room he is in, and who will want to know all about his dad and the folks who loved him.

We are planning a memorial celebration in August, close to David’s birthday. Thank you.
