David Esterly

David Esterly, limewood carver, died Saturday, June 15, 2019, at age 75.

Beloved by his family, friends and the many who were touched and inspired by his work, he asked that only these lines from W.B. Yeats appear in his obituary:

"By his command these words are cut:  Cast a cold eye on life, on death.  Horseman, pass by!"
