David Miller, a longstanding friend of the school and a wonderful colleague and collaborator passed away on April 10. Born in Brooklyn, New York, David attended Carnegie-Mellon, where he received a BArch in 1964, and Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he was awarded a MArch in 1965. David came to Hawaii in 1971, joining the firm of Lemmon, Freeth, Haines, Jones, and Farrell, later Architects Hawaiʻi. He became a principal of the firm in 1975 and CEO in 2000, serving as chairman of the board from 2010 to 2021.
David was a valued member of our Dean’s Advisory Council and also was an outside reviewer in the effort to move our BEnvD from probationary to permanent status. He always took a great interest in everything that went on with the school and was never too busy to offer advice and support. He will be much missed.
He kehau ho ‘oma ’ema ‘eke aloha!
