On October 19, Kit Maira reported that longtime libertarian and former Los Angeles County LP Chair, David Larkin, died on or around October 8, 2008, apparently of natural causes.
I knew David to be one of the good libertarians. Principled, friendly to all, generous, helpful, without ego or malice.
He was a Vietnam War veteran who last year spoke of his war experiences
and how he became an antiwar libertarian.
David was about 60 years old. He was overweight, led a sedentary lifestyle, and had long suffered from diabetes. I expect those were contributing factors to an all-too-early death.
Like the late Samuel E. Konkin III
, David died all too soon. He will be missed by his many friends and compatriots.
Details on his memorial services pending.
