The sad news of  David T. O'Connor's death reached the editorial desk on Wednesday, April 28. David died at home in Texas surrounded by a loving family.

David had the distinction of owning two National Champions — Shell Creek Coin which won the Grand Junction crown in 2006, and Connor's E Z Button, named winner in 2012, both handled by Steve Hurdle.

David was involved in field trials for a goodly term of years, attending many of the trials where his dogs competed. A number of his contenders appeared in the winners' circle as far back as the early 1990s, among them Clearcut, Black Rain and Snapjax Cracker, handled by the late Gary Pinalto.

May he rest in peace.
