David Fitzpatrick, #17654
#17654 David Fitzpatrick spent his first summer in Westport in 2000 as a Cub in Burr Lodge. After watching a baseball game on the Cub Diamond and touring the Alley two summers prior with his father #10154 Hugh, he knew Camp Dudley would be a major presence in his life.
David spent nine consecutive summers at Camp, matriculating through the leadership program and reaching his goal of being a Leader at Camp Dudley. During that period of his life, there was no place he would rather be than mid mountains and lakes. An avid full-season camper, he concluded that the only correct answer to the question, “Which half is better?” is “Both!”
Throughout his post-Camp life, he has never been far from camp friends. From 50-day road trips with Duds Buds to running Washington DC-themed extravaganzas to 14+-year fantasy football leagues, his closest friends have camp numbers. David’s life continues to be enriched by the people that Dudley has brought into it, and he is excited about the opportunity to facilitate strong connections between Dudley-Kiniya alumni.
David attended Williams College in the Berkshire Mountains, after which he moved to Washington, DC to begin his career. Based in Baltimore, MD, he works at EY as a Cybersecurity Consultant advising organizations on how to effectively protect themselves from emergent cyber risks. David and his wife Meredith have two boys, James (3) and William (1), who undoubtedly are future campers.
David is honored to serve as the DKAA co-president and to steward this institution that so many hold dear.
