San Diego Social Diary
In Tribute - With heavy heart comes the news of dear friend David Copley's passing..... compassion, loyalty, wit, generosity, and kindness. We will always remember you David... you are an angel.
"It is easy to misunderstand people if you do not really know them. If I did not know David, I would not know the depth of his kindness, his compassion, his generosity, and his endless devotion to community, people, and animals." - With admiration, Margo Schwab

Copley, the owner of Copley
News which includes the San Diego Union Tribune
and so much more, recently returned from a trip to Europe. David
invited his best friend Judith Harris, his aide
Andrew Shelton and columnist nonpareil,
Burl Stiff. They jetted off in David's G4, that's the
Gulfstream IV. It was for more than just fun though.
David et al went
to Zurich for a major tribute to artists Jeanne-Claude
and Christo. The duo is famous for so many incredible
artworks, like, The Gates, which vibrantly
graced New York City's Central Park for 16 days last year.
David is probably one of the largest collectors of Christo
and Jeanne-Claude's works in North America, and certainly one
of their biggest patrons.
And the fun did not
stop, nor did the pace. Judith Harris describes
it as an incredible and fabulous whirlwind. Among the highlights,
dinners in Paris at the Tour D'Argent, Le Jules Verne, and Espadon
at the Ritz Hotel. France's Southern region included a lunch at
La Colombe D'Or. The stop in Monte Carlo was of special seafaring
interest to David. It's where his soon to be completed 50 meter
plus yacht Happy Days will be berthed
this summer. Front row of course.
And summer is the
season to be on the French Riviera. Lynn Wyatt throws
her annual birthday bash there with Royals, Sir Elton
John, Fergie and other ritzy socials to be counted in
And we know
David will be a handsome part of the Riviera scene.
