We Will Miss Dave Quinlan
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Dave Quinlan.  Dave was dedicated to NAMI Orange County and his kindness, compassion and humor touched many lives. Dave mentored those who needed guidance, inspired those that worked with him and cheered all of us on in whatever goal we reached for.  We will continue his efforts here including the NAMIWalks, Family to Family and our peer support programs, all of which he dedicated himself to.
Dave Quinlan will be greatly missed. 
Our condolences to Dave's family including his wife Andrea, and his daughter Heather. 
Service information will be announced when available.
