    Monty nailed it. Prifti was a force of nature. Just a giant exploding rolling ball of fun, enthusiasm and life. If every teacher had his personal gifts, the planet would be a much better place. RIP. He'll be missed by so many people.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.

    Very sad news. I had corresponded with David over the last year or so. The way he fought this brutal illness and still remained so positive was an inspiration. My thoughts are with his family. You can view his APUG profile here: http://www.apug.org/forums/members/prifti/

    I am sorry to hear this. I held him very high. Fantastic photographer - not just in technique. My condolances.

    Having had the pleasure of meeting David in person I can attest to Monty's description of him... he was a force of nature, a wonderful and admired teacher and an incredible artist. I also had the wonderful opportunity to curate a show of his work (and two other fine photographers) in a show two years ago at the Valley Photo Center here in Springfield. Every one of his plates was a gem.

    David's presence will be sorely missed by so many people. My condolences to his wife and children.

    There is little that can be said to add to the tributes given here. Let me simply add my condolences for his students, who have lost a wonderful teacher and mentor. David was a very special man.

    Indeed we was a force of nature, Clay

    He was a big loud spirit of goodness both in and outside of the darkroom. My only consolation today is that ... Perhaps... He is now everywhere.

    Condolences to his family and to those who knew him personally. The work he posted here was always an inspiration.
