    David was a wonderful mentor, a good friend and a brilliant colleague to me during our times together at IBM. He threw me a lifeline in 1992 to come to Rochester and join his team - at the Rochester Executive Briefing Center (home of the AS/400). I was quite possibly the least qualified speaker on that topic he could possibly hire - but thank goodness he had other plans for me. I eventually replaced him in his manager role to let him move on to do bigger & better things in the AS/400 Lab. It was a win-win for us both. I will never forget that favor.

    Like most brilliant people - David was 100 MPH on things that interested him (a lot of topics!) and was a very talented keyboard player among his many hobbies. He was always curious and looking towards the next big thing. I am sure he's figuring that out in Heaven as we struggle with his leaving us behind.

    May God Bless you David Sass .. you were a very good man and a trusted friend.
    Rest in peace.
