Obituary

David Robert Fink, 46 years old, of Austin Texas, passed away November 7, 2017 from complications of cancer. David was born on November 16, 1970 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

David earned a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Chicago, and an M.S. in Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin. David had a beautiful tenor voice and studied with a vocal instructor at The Juilliard School in New York City.

He also volunteered as a photographer for the Daily Texan at UT Austin. David loved music, travel, fine food, and wine. He had an ever-present curiosity about all things, especially chemistry. His illness cut short his study of chemistry at UT Austin, for which earned Phi Beta Kappa.

David was also a loving and devoted father to his three children, and he was an at-home parent to them for many years. David is survived by his father Richard Fink, his mother Elaine Handelman, his sister Susan Fink, and his three children, Aria Minns-Fink, Solomon Minns-Fink, and Zohara Minns-Fink.

The funeral will be held on Sunday, November 12th at 11 am at Adath Jeshurun, 10500 Hillside Lane West, Minnetonka MN, 55305. A memorial service will be held in Austin, Texas at a later date.

Contributions can be made to the Ocular Melanoma Foundation or the Austin Jewish Academy.
