Rest in Peace our
brother David Baskind
I am beyond saddened to inform you that our good friend, David Baskind
passed away on August 23, 2005.

mother after the hurricane. She just returned my call and broke
According to Lois, he developed some kind of abscess on one cheek that
then appeared on the other cheek, and he developed worsening symptoms.
By the time he got to medical attention, he was very ill. I do

Dave was my good friend, my co-inventor, my partner and my teacher. He
was always quick with a smile and generous to a fault.

He was real smart,
very intuitive, and creative too. David did our first Model One
mic and got

and tried to keep to the bright side of life. I will miss him,
and his many
friends here at GT will miss him too.
I am comforted by the knowledge that David finally found his soul mate
love of his life Lois, whom he married. Love was late to find David in
life, but then some of us never find that peace. It is also
that David was at peace with his God, or so he had said on one occasion
spoke about it, so then I plan on seeing him again when I pass over to
great Master studio in the sky.
Dave was a very good friend to me and
did much work on my mono to stereo
invention. I too am greatly saddened by this news. Thanks
for letting me
