David Larkin, RIP

On October 19, Kit Maira reported that longtime libertarian and former Los Angeles County LP Chair, David Larkin, died on or around October 8, 2008, apparently of natural causes.

I knew David to be one of the good libertarians. Principled, friendly to all, generous, helpful, without ego or malice.

He was a Vietnam War veteran who last year spoke of his war experiences and how he became an antiwar libertarian.

David was about 60 years old. He was overweight, led a sedentary lifestyle, and had long suffered from diabetes. I expect those were contributing factors to an all-too-early death.

Like the late Samuel E. Konkin III, David died all too soon. He will be missed by his many friends and compatriots.

Details on his memorial services pending.
