Colonel David Black, President of GMC 1971-1973
COL David Black, 79, died Sunday, Oct. 10, 2004, after a long illness. GMC has certainly lost a loyal alumnus and supporter of the college as well as a true friend.
COL Black, a native of Bibb County, made his home in Milledgeville for many years. He was a 1942 high school graduate of Georgia Military College and then served in the U.S. Navy. Following World War II, he earned degrees from Mercer University and began his teaching career at GMC as a classroom teacher . Through the years he also served as dean, registrar, president, and headmaster. In 1971, he returned to his first love–classroom teaching.
Survivors include his wife Pat Black of Milledgeville; two sons, Dave Black of Milledgeville and Kim Black and wife Amie of Arrowhead, Calif.; a daughter, Allison Everett and husband Ken; six grandchildren, Sara Everett, Kacy Everett and Austin Everett, Zack Black, Mollie Black and Maggie Black.
Services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at First Baptist Church with burial in the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 795, Milledgeville 31059-0795. The family will receive friends at Moores Funeral Home from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
He was a gentleman whose manner of dealing with students, fellow faculty members, and friends set him apart from the crowd. COL Black will be missed by all who knew him.
