Mr. Lee was the best Math teacher I had. Even when he was sick, he showed up to class with a great attitude and was always there to help. He will be missed.

David was a great classmate and friend. We were all devastated to hear of his passing. Always kind and took his sports seriously. I see the posts on what an amazing teacher he was. I would like to think (aside from us having an amazing teacher in Mr. Wiemiller) that I maybe played a role in his career choice. I sat next to David in Algebra II and I am sure he thought, well, if I can help her , I can help anyone...Kidding aside, my deepest sympathies to you all. I can't imagine the magnitude of this loss for your family, school, and community. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. -Luanne

Very sorry to hear of Mr. Lee's passing. He was one of my favorite teachers at SPHS, and I was fortunate to have him write one of my reference letters that allowed me to attend UW-Madison. I'm thankful for everything he taught me about math, golf and life. Rest in peace Mr. Lee, you will be missed.

Mr. Lee was one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. I used to go to his room during my study hall because I felt there was always more to learn from him, and for the kindness, warmth and joy he radiated. His calm, even-keeled personality made me think that an introvert like me could become a teacher too. I think maybe there’s no way to quantify the impact he has had on my life and on the lives of so many others. I feel lucky to have known David both as a teacher and more recently as a colleague. We’ll miss him so much, and I send my condolences to his family. Ken

Mr. Lee was a kind and intelligent coach and teacher. The “and teacher” part is what I will remember most about Mr. Lee, as he is perhaps the only SPHS bball / baseball / fball coach i remember who also taught an AP class. He had the rare level of patience required to wrangle a bunch of over energetic teenage boys while also being able to clearly communicate the foundational concepts of math and statistics. i wish i would have appreciated this more in the aughts and hope sun prairie athletes can be coached by more STEM teachers in the future.

There aren't words to express how highly I regarded Dave. He was such an incredibly kind and thoughtful young man when I knew him as a student and athlete. I was not surprised to see that he had become a teacher. It combined his intelligence and his sharing spirit. There really aren't words to describe the loss.

I am extremely sad to hear this news. He was such an incredible teacher to our daughters. They truly enjoyed him and appreciated all he did for them. Daily, he went above and beyond to make math "fun" for them. All of our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Such a huge loss to so many.

I had the honor of working with David at the high school. What a fantastic man and teacher. We are all better for having had him in our lives.

My condolences to the Lee Family. When I think of David, I think kindness. I will always remember how kind he was when we were in high school. Our class lost a good one!

I am overwhelmed with sadness. Looking at old photos and signed yearbooks tonight, I am humbled by and reminded of Dave's greatness. Those treasured years spent with my best friend were long ago but never forgotten.  I want to extend my condolences to Kit and Jacob, Jim and Mary, Greg, Kristine and other family and friends.
