Brian Corcoran at says: I haven't the words to express how disheartened I am to learn of the passing of Dave Michaud. Some of the finest memories of my lost youth revolve upon the adventures that Dave and I shared together growing up in the '50s and early '60s including defending the snow fort we built in his back yard against the snowball attacks of the opposing neighborhood kids, ice skating at the Atkinson Triangle park, and after-school baseball games in the dirt lot around the corner from Holy Angels school. I had lost track of Dave after grammar school and find it tragic that I now connect only at the time of his passing. But my memories of him are as though they were just yesterday, and always occur to me with a smile. Thank you Dave for all the good humor you showed me and the enthusiasm you instilled in me for sports. I always remember Dave as being somewhat mischievous in a good-natured sort of way. As an example of this I recall in eight grade that Sister John Marie would religiously have the entire class line up for water at the hallway water fountain in mid afternoon to ensure we were sufficiently hydrated to carry us through the day. She would always assign one of the boys to stand by and hold the valve open while the girls would then lean over and take a drink from the upward flowing fountain. Well, this fountain had a defective valve, which if you twisted the handle open at one-half, it would produce a modest flow perfect for drinking comfortably. However, if you opened it up fully it would send a blast of water so high and fast that it flew up and out the basin and onto the floor. Dave was wise to this defect and used it to his humorous advantage. He would hold the valve opened half-way wearing his signature Cheshire cat's grin and when one of the girls would lean over to sip the flowing arc of water he would then open the valve fully and blast them in the face with a heavy stream of it! Now, forgive my jaded sense of humor but I thought that was an hilarious expression of comic genius! That certainly must be true if I can laugh at it today, some sixty-two years later. Thank you, Dave. You were a mischievous imp as a child but never mal-intended. You were my best friend in grammar school and I am ever so sorry to not have cultivated your continued friendship in my later years. May you rest in peace Dave, and when I arrive to join you, if we can find a defective water fountain in heaven, I will try to line up a string of innocent female angels to take a drink from it and laugh once again as you prank them with your humor.
