Gretchen Cook Anderson 2 hrs · In honor of David Summergrad, a dear friend, foot soldier for diversity, peace and social justice, tireless educator, humanitarian, husband, father, selfless helper, community leader, mentor, and all-around phenomenal human being, I’m sharing one of his favorite songs (YouTube link below) that kept him inspired for decades. No matter how the world tries to divide us along lines of difference, he was my brother. We are all in this life together, people, and David knew that and lived it everyday. May you Rest In Peace and Power, my special friend. You’ve done it all, you can lay it down. We’ve got it from here, brother. With love, respect and in solidarity forever. Thank you for talking the talk and walking the walk.

Heartbroken. Just saw him on Zoom Wednesday night and was happy for him that he was taking a step back from some of his many volunteer commitments to focus on his family and students.

So sorry. He was great neighbor, father and husband. He will be remembered as a gentle and kind human. He opened my eyes years ago to BLM. (He also saw me walking my dog in the early morning in my PJs more than any other human.)

David was my mentor and inspiration for my teaching style. He lit up a room and filled it with awe and so many wonderful thought provoking questions. My heart breaks for everyone who will feel this loss. The Explo community mourns and sends love to his family.

I am truly saddened by the loss of such a great teacher, friend, and mentor. He had a great sense of humor and let me and my friends do silly things and laugh with us.

So sorry for your loss. I will always remember his 8th grade English class at Wayland, where one day during our unit on advertising, he had us go home & take out all the Proctor & Gamble brand products out of the cabinets & try to get our parents to throw them away. As an organic farmer & Sociology professor, I’m still against corporate brands & using toxic chemicals to this day. Thank You Mr. Summergrad!
