David Strickland (1955-1985)
On July 6th, the aquatic plant management industry suffered a tragic loss when David Strickland of Miramar, Florida lost his life in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. David, who was only 29 years old, was the proud father of a 5 year old girl to whom he dedicated his life. David was employed by the Hollywood Reclamation District under the direct supervision of “Moon” Mullins. During his 8 years at the District, “Moon” reflects on David’s ambition and dedication to his duties at the District, as well as his excellent working relationships with the other employees and the general public. Over the years, David had worked his way up to Field Superintendent and had aspirations of one day stepping into “Moon’s” shoes. David was liked by everyone who knew him. The Society to which he so proudly belonged, extends their deepest sympathy for his close friends and loved ones.
