David French

David Q French was born June 16. 1940 and raised in the Portland area.

He is survived by two sisters, Patricia Henderson and Laurie French and one brother, Randolph French.

David remained in Oregon for several years after graduating high school and college and then became very involved in sailing and racing sailboats. He moved to Southern California and became a member of Dana Point Yacht Club where he was involved in racing sailboats and also became involved with the club’s Junior Sailing program. Dave was recruited to work for sail lofts and traveled the west coast designing and selling sails for racing.

Dave returned to the Portland area in the 80’s to assist his family with their business and became a member of Portland Yacht Club.

David and his family relocated to Whidbey Island where he was employed at Island Transit for 13 years as a Driver then Supervisor.

Dave joined Oak Harbor Yacht Club and, while doing quite a bit of racing, became very involved with the Juniors Sailing Program, which brought him a lot of joy.

After several recent months in hospitals and care facilities, Dave passed away quietly at his home on June 17, the day after his 80th birthday.

As per David’s wishes there will be no formal funeral services.
