David Blicker

David M. Blicker
April 26, 1939 - October 26, 2012

It is with sadness that we report that the David Blicker, Director for Opening Doors, passed away on Friday, October 26th after a short illness.

I had gotten to know David this last few years as a funded partner of United Way $en$e-ability program.  David was an honest, passionate, caring individual that thought more of his staff and the people they helped, then himself.

As the executive director for Opening Doors, Inc.  David built  the infrastructure and staff capacity, strengthening existing programs and building new ones, more than doubling the organization’s budget and staffing, and providing life-changing services to hundreds of clients per year.

In the words of Thomas Carlyle, “Nothing that was worthy in the past departs; no truth or goodness realized by man ever dies, or can die.”

David, your works and kindness will live on.
