David Northrop, a 1988 graduate of New Mexico Tech with a bachelor's degree in computer science, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, Nov. 4. Northrop was known for his technical expertise and trademark sense of humor in his seven years at UNM. Born in Philadelphia in 1958, after graduation from Tech, he worked for both Hewlett Packard and Honeywell in the 1990s before bringing his skills and expertise to UNM in 2001. Northrop became associate director in April 2008.

He is survived by his wife Amy Blackburn.
