David Kolch died in Chicago on June 2, 1986. His ashes will be buried in Minetto, New York and Florence, Italy. While earning a Masters Degree in Art History from Syracuse University (1973), David spent several years in Florence working with fresco paintings and participating in the post-flood effort. In 1974, he began an apprenticeship at the Fogg Art Museum, receiving his Certificate in Conservation in 1977.
Interrupting his work as Museum Conservator for the Lyman Allyn Museum in New London, CT from 1977-1981, he served as Temporary Associate Conservator of Paintings at the Wadsworth Athenaeum, Hartford, CT in 1980. In 1981, David moved to Los Angeles to become the Paintings Conservator for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. To mention only a few of his projects, he worked on such noteworthy exhibitions as the French Impressionist "A Day in the Country" and also contributed research to the field on "Materials and Techniques in an Unfinished Altarpiece by Rosso Fiorentino" (AIC Annual Meeting 1983). In 1985, David moved to Chicago to become the Paintings Conservator for the Art Institute of Chicago.
David touched many of our lives and hearts during his short, but full lifetime. He contributed not only to the field of conservation but enriched the lives of all who came to know him. An artist in his own right, the holiday season never failed to inspire him to communicate a seasonal greeting through his beautifully collaged artworks. Wherever he made his home, David set aside a "studio" space, reserved to create and view his work. If you weren't aware of him as a conservation professional, one would think he was an artist, historian and collector first, judging by his knowledge, enthusiasm and gift of appreciation for the arts. His talent and interests didn't stop there, he was also a gourmet chef and loved to entertain with luxurious dinner parties and lively conversation.
Many have lost David but many more will be denied the pleasure of having known him. In his dry humor as he was often heard to say on leaving the Museum at night, "I'm getting out of this Hell Hole," and he has, but far too soon.

A Tribute To Joe Chesare...
July 11, 1987
To the Editor:
Oswego and it’s youth baseball programs lost a good friend recently. He was a kind, soft-spoken, good-natured friend, and a sportsman in the truest sense. He was a friend and coach who was revered by youngster, teens, and adults.
Such a man was Joe Chesare; loved and respected by so many.
As a coach, he never demanded more - but never expected less. His kids on his teams, or those he helped along the way, always gave their all because Joe had a special way of bringing out their best. His encouraging remarks, positive reinforcement, helpful practice sessions, and constant guidance not only developed individual players but brought about fine team play and effort.
He was a fine example of good sportsmanship, fair play, and giving credit where credit was due even if it was for the opposing team; he would be the
first to acknowledge a fine play by the opposing team.
Many practice seasions did he attend, not only those he called weekly for his own team, but those of others as he thoroughly enjoyed watching the progress and growth of the players and was always there with helpful tips along the way.
He was always at the Fort, pursuing that interest.
His presence we will see no more, but he will never leave our hearts and minds.
There was one more ball game to be played, and HE knew who to call.

Margaret was not only my friend, but my backyard neighbor. Margaret was smart, very musical, steady, a loving daughter and sister and a loyal friend. She always gave 100% to any activity or academic pursuit. Margaret truly loved life.
Margaret and Joe Shoenfelt were sweethearts from Campus School all through high school. Margaret went off to Syracuse and Joe to Union. They married young, during freshman year, and Margaret moved back with her parents and to SUNY Oswego while Joe continued at Union. I admired how they made a difficult situation work. Margaret and Joe had a solid marriage and three terrific daughters. Unfortunately, both Margaret and Joe passed way too early, and the world is a lesser place for that.
Margaret and I stayed in touch over the years; I looked forward to hearing from her. I miss Margaret and thnk of her with fondness. She was a great lady.

Norm was a very close friend of mine all through high school. We played golf together, constantly. He lived out around the loop in a little green house with his dad and grandmother. Many a time he would get up at 5AM, make a lunch, slip his golf bag over his shoulders, get on his bike, and pedal all the way to Battle Island to meet me for a day of golf. We'd pay $3.50 to get on the course and then play from dawn to dusk. One Saturday, we played 54 holes, carrying our bags all the way. Then he would slip his club bag over his shoulder and ride his bike back home, in the dark. Norm was a good, kind, loving, caring father who adored his kids and his lovely wife. Losing them, was more than he could bear. Nowadays, whenever I play golf, I use a cart...and Norm always rides along with me. I miss my friend.
