David was a terrific friend and wonderful human being. I had to chuckle re the post_it notes. In theater, where we met, his script and dressing area, and sometimes his pockets, were filled with notes emphasing a line to be stressed, or an acting direction. I was honored to perform a public reading of a selection of his one act plays… and to perform with him on stage in a number of productions. During our last performance together he portrayed Theodore Davis, to my Archibald Cleghorn in the play The Last Princess. Forever afterward he greeted me in Queens English as “Archie!”, i i greeted him in a Scottish brogue as “Teddy!”. He gifted me one of my most cherished treasures, a small Teddy Bear, which he told me would always be my good luck charm. I miss my friend.
David Penhallow was my dads very close friend and my drama teacher in the early seventies! He was a great influence on my life and for a while I was involved in the visual production industry. He was a wonderfully talented teacher and I just lived him!
I spoke with him just a few months before his death. My husband is from Oahu and a music teacher like my father! I wanted him to meet David but it wasn’t to be! I have some great stories about David Penhallow! A great influences don’t a very special spirit indeed!
