Condolences for the family of “David A. Strongin”

Condolence from Mary Jurkonis, Former Publisher of the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza on July 19th, 2019 8:05 pm

My condolences to the Strongin Family. David was a strong supporter and writer for the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza while I was Publisher and for many years prior. He will be missed by many.

Dear Nancy and Family of David,

Despite his health challenges, I was most taken aback to hear of his passing. It has to be the strength of his personality and vigor with which he conducted his communications with everyone that made me think he was indestructible. David was the first person I met in incline when Nancy and I were passing through-his light was on and he beckoned us in…I am grateful that I was able to reconnect with him long after we both left Incline. We have remembered him often in my friendship with John and Susan Meybin who were introduced by David.

My sincere condolences to Nancy who was always there. May David rest in peace and stay in your heart. bob angres

So sorry for your loss. David was an incredible man. A man of faith. I know he is with our heavenly Father and I can’t wait to see him again. May God have mercy on his soul. David is in our prayers. May our Blessed Mother comfort you Nancy and your family.

Condolence from Frenchy Corbeille on July 22nd, 2019 12:11 pm

My loss of a fellow warrior pales to insignificance compared to your loss, Nancy. Though we never met, I knew David, and through him I know you to be a woman of uncommon valor, stronger than most, caring and capable. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and May God Bless You Always.

Condolence from Charles de Chezelles on July 23rd, 2019 12:20 am

Dear Nancy,
Thank you for forwarding the very touching obituary about David whose death has touched me deeply. He was someone who, once you had net him, you could never forget. He was like a big brother to me when I needed one and despite the geographical distance that separated us after his tour of duty in Germany had ended, I never forgot this kindest and most solid rock of a man.
Our prayer for the rest of his soul joins in your prayers.
I will ever forget David to the day I die.
With much love.

Condolence from Wend Schaefer, M. D. on July 24th, 2019 8:23 am

David was one of the first persons that I met when moving to Incline Village. I admired him very much. He was an early financial supporter of my African missions. He lead a great life and in many respects an example to us all. My deepest sympathy to Nancy and family

Condolence from Debbie & Jerry Colonica on October 10th, 2019 5:23 pm

Dear Nancy, We want to offer you our sincere condolences . We were so sorry to hear of David’s passing. He is the type of man that will never be forgotten. He made such an impact in Incline Village and Tyrolian Village. We think of you often as we walk around Tyrolian Village and when we get our visitations from our little flying squirrels at night,(we call them all Cuppa!) . Ever since you two moved to Arizona we have missed the Curmudgeon’s Corner and all the lively conversations with David.
We pray for the Lord’s great comfort and peace to be with you. God Bless You!
With Love, Debbie & Jerry Colonica

Condolence from John Ross on November 9th, 2019 9:51 am

Dear Nancy,
My deepest condolence. David was a long time friend in Incline Village. We worked together on several projects. He was a top-notch businessman and writer.
I’ll miss that wonderful voice.
John Ross
