A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?

Greetings family and friends! This memorial website was created in the memory of  David Sitek. It is a venue to share memories, pictures, music, and videos as well as a resource for family and friends to connect with the various chapters of David's life. Please feel free to leave a memory of your own.

Information on the Montana State Scholarship Setup in David's Memory:

David worked for IM Flash Technologies and was a Montana State University Industrial Engineering graduate. As a way to remember and honor him IMFT has set up a memorial scholarship fund in his name.

IMFT has made an initial donation, and will also match alumni donations from this point forward. If you would like to donate to MSU, you can do so in David’s name and get a 1:1 match from IMFT. These funds will be used for engineering scholarships.

If you are interested, visit the Montana State University foundation website:

Once there, click on the "make a gift now" link on the left side of the page. Under the “matching employer information”, enter IMFT or IM Flash Technologies. Under the dedications link, click on the “in memory of” link and enter David Sitek.

Dave, Happy Birthday!!! I hope you're celebrating and having a great time. I'll be making a toast to you tonight (soon as I'm done with class...sigh). Happy birthday!!

Dave with Halloween just around the corner I can only imagine what tricks you would have had up your sleeve. I have a few of your costumes here at home. I was thinking I should wear one to hand out the candy at Kristin's house. I will carve a pumpkin in your memory and I will remember all the times we did that together and especially the trip I made to VT just to buy you a pumpkin.!

I miss and love you Dave....Paul asked me to marry him on July 12th and I was so saddened that you were not here to celebrate with me. I know you were there in spirit because you blew out the candles and knocked over the flowers to let me know you were there....I think of you every single minute of every day and I kiss your picture every morning. Thank you for your love and support ~ Mom

Hi Dave, Its been 3 months and we think of you often. After your Mom's eulogy at the service I was inspired and am pleased to say that I've started an excel spreadsheet! Missing you! Love, Auntie Jill

Goofy Sweet Ridiculous Dave, I miss you daily, I think of you daily. Almost everything reminds me of you. I'll never forget your uniqueness or the crazy awesome moments we've shared. I remember sitting on a bridge with you in northern utah when you told me I needed to follow my dream... and everyday now, I'm living my dream. Thanks for opening my eyes. Love you.

David, I hope you are up there reading this and joyfully smiling as you look down upon us all. I finally dropped a knee and asked Anelise to be my wife. I know you would be so proud, even though saving up for the ring meant I couldn't join you for a beach vacation. Pretty sure you'd respect it. Miss ya man. We'll keep a seat open at the wedding for you. Please feel free to join us.

Dave, There isn't a day that I don't think about you. Daily, I think what would Dave have done here? What adventures would he be taking this weekend? What joke or story of his would I be laughing at now? I'll always miss you, but in a sense you are still with me everyday.

Dave - The last time I saw you you were conducting impromptu yoga classes every morning and making fun of me for not joining in. Later, you pulled me aside and said, "but seriously, just try it. You'll feel so good". I've been pretty much every day since I got back to Oregon. You were right. Love ya and miss you buddy. Stephan
