Team David Remembers PRSA Houston Member David Monroe at National Kidney Foundation Walk on Sunday

More than 40 walkers turned out on Sunday to walk in remembrance of PRSA Houston Member David Monroe, a veteran of the Houston public relations community, who passed away on Sept. 26, 2004 from an aneurysm.

David was born with a kidney defect, and after several surgeries as a newborn, led a full and healthy life. David had a kidney transplant in his early 20s.

In Houston, David worked at de La Garza Public Relations and then went in-house to work first for Himalaya, and then for Cornell Companies. During this time he also was active in PRSA Houston, and volunteered his PR services to the Southeast Texas chapter of the National Kidney Foundation.

Prior to the Walk, Elly Trickett, David's fiancée, and Rhonda Kelly, David's sister, addressed the crowd and spoke of David's commitment to the public relations profession and the National Kidney Foundation. I did not know David personally, but appreciated the opportunity to learn about him from his family and friends and walk in his memory. Please remember David in your thoughts.
