FONDE, DR. DAVID STUART - 82, passed away on Sunday, December 2, after a long battle with throat cancer. David was born in Knoxville, Tennessee on June 6, 1930, to Ruth (Million) and Stuart Fonde. He attended Baylor School in Chattanooga, graduating in 1948 as class valedictorian. He then attended the University of Tennessee, majoring in electrical engineering, and graduating with a 4.0 grade average. This made him valedictorian once again, the second person in the history of the school to graduate with such a grade, and the first to do so in engineering. He was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity. He was offered a Rhodes Scholarship, but chose to receive a commission in the Navy. Following a three-year tour, he joined TRW, a space research company in Los Angeles. During this time, he acquired his Masters and Doctorate in electrical engineering. After retirement, he settled in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Predeceased by his parents, he is survived by his wife, Eileen, brothers Douglas of Cleveland, Tennessee, and Richard of Atlanta, GA. A private family memorial will be held following cremation.
