When David Oats died last week, at the too-young age of 58, he left behind a grieving family and throngs of admirers. He was a community activist with a capital C and A, with an emphasis on parks, particularly Flushing Meadow Park. He had a long history of fighting the good fight for Queens and its various interests. To learn more about this Queens giant, who was also a resident of Forest Hills, take a few moments to explore these links. They put our loss into sharp perspective.

Oats dedicated much of his life to the improvement and recognition of Queens. Search him on Google—you’ll see.

We wish his wife Corrine and all those who loved and knew him our condolences.
