David Palmer
On September 18, David R. Palmer, retired faculty member from the Management Department, died after a chronic illness. He was a treasured member of the SCU faculty for more than 30 years.  With his family and friends, we remember David and offer our prayers for his eternal rest and the consolation of all his loved ones.

David taught courses in both the undergraduate and MBA programs in the Leavey School of Business, specializing in management strategy and corporate social responsibility.  He also was instrumental in developing the Leavey School’s theme-based Executive MBA program in which he taught for many years.  David had a special love for Santa Clara University and a warm fondness for those with whom he worked for so many years.

While we mourn David’s death we also recall the gift he was to his family, friends, colleagues and students. Notes of condolence may be sent to his companion of many years, Marcie Radius, care of the Management Department:

After graduating from Klamath Union High School in 1949, she attended San Jose State College. Beverly married Andrew Honzel Jr. '53 in 1953, and they made an extraordinary team.

She was an exceptional cook and hostess, and delighted in friends becoming extended family. She created a home that welcomed all who entered. Bev was in every sense of the word a true gentlewoman. She was a trusted and loving partner to her husband of 61 years, Andy. Bev was a kind and loyal friend, always thoughtful and generous.
