I am deeply saddened to have to share the news that David Ives passed away Friday afternoon, following a brief illness. His wife Patsy, his sons Stephen and David, and their families all were with him. He was 84 years old.
David was a pioneer, and a friend. This is a sad time for all of us who were fortunate enough to work with him. During a career that spanned four decades, he provided WGBH with leadership and vision, warmth and humor, and a boundless enthusiasm for our mission.
A memorial service is scheduled for May 29 at 2pm at Harvard Memorial Church in Cambridge.
