We mourn the loss of another Senior Ko Dan Ja member, Dave Beiermann, Dan Bon 19442.

Today we say goodbye to a great man.

Sa Bom Nim Dave Beiermann was a leader in so many ways, and to so many. His passion for teaching in school and studio will always be remembered by those who's lives he touched. It was an honor to stand with you in line, and more important an honor to have you as a friend.

Your laugh will always be there in my head, and those “Special teeth” you used to make others smile and laugh, should be bronzed! :).

Thank you for always being there for me and sharing the journey with my self and students. I know many of my seniors were greatly moved by your true example of Moo Do. Your real nature of being a great human being is all we can ask of others, and you set a great standard.

I wish I could be there with you, but know my spirit is better because of you!

God bless my brother and “ride on”!!!!
