I appreciate Richard Greenwood, Annie Eveland and of course the Union-Bulletin for presenting such a great story about David Herbert Cochran.
I’ve known Dave for several years without knowing about him. I knew he ate at the Christian Aid Center (our parish prepares meals once a month). I knew he shopped at thrift stores (I met him through St. Vincent de Paul). And that he loved to wear Hawaiian shirts.
His friend, Corey, came by to tell us of his passing and I felt such remiss that I knew very little “about” him. Then in Sunday’s paper was his life story. How great to really know about his life.
I knew him as a pleasant, polite fellow. But what a life. He touched so many people here in Walla Walla
as a DJ, a Santa and a friend. I appreciate the great tribute and story of a fine gentleman.
