I worked in the billing office of an Anesthesiology group in Lincoln. As the practice expanded they brought in a new Dr and it was David Toren! I was so surprised when they brought him to the office to meet all of us. He married an out of town gal he met when doing his residency and I think they got married around the time of our 10th reunion. He was still working in the anesthesiology practice when he became ill and we were all terribly shocked when he passed away, I think it was around 1986 or 1987. It was a very sad time for his family, his colleagues and for those of us that worked for him.

I attended Sheridan, Irving, LSE & Bio 101 at UNL with Dave.  I always think of him as smart and so kind.  The last time I saw Dave was in 1985 at Lincoln General Hospital while I was visiting my dad.  I saw my old classmate in a doctor's white coat walking down the hall.  I think I might have embarassed him when I exclaimed, "David Toren you are a doctor now"!    We exchanged a few words and went on our ways.  I was so saddened when I heard of his death in 1987.
