We recently lost a tireless advocate for the environment and friend, Dave Grubb. Those who worked with him (or against him) knew he was thoughtful, hardworking, committed, and persistent. He actively participated in many organizations and was routinely the one keeping us organized. Dave refused to suffer laziness or euphemism – his focus was laser sharp. Yet he was involved in virtually every environmental issue in San Diego County: climate, wildlife, land preservation, water supply and quality, coastal resources, and transportation. On a personal note, I’ll miss Dave’s laugh, the way he fell asleep during late meetings, and his ability to call B.S. I’m grateful for the nearly two decades I worked alongside Dave. He will not soon be forgotten.
