Last month, we all lost a very good man who was dedicated to furthering our understanding of various energy technologies, especially in the area of motor/generator design. About five years ago, David Squires presented Advanced Motor Secrets at our first Energy Science & Technology Conference. Over the years, he quietly worked on many motor/generator related projects with Peter Lindemann, Paul Babcock, Jim Murray, Mike Waters and others. His experience and knowledge has been very inspirational to many and he will be sadly missed.
David Robert Squires went home to be with the Lord on Sept. 15, 2016.
He is survived by his wife, Rosie Squires, and three adult children, Grant Rees, Joyia Squires and Bryce Squires.
Grant is currently attending Whitworth University as a music major. Joyia is at Western Washington State University in Bellingham studying with an emphasis in art. Bryce recently graduated from Colville High School and intends to attend Digipen on the old Microsoft Campus.
Family members include John and his wife Gloria of Kettle Falls; sister, Laura Squires; and brothers, Jeff, and Charlie all of West Plains, Missouri.
David was born in San Diego, California in 1947. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in electronic engineering from San Jose State University. He was a leading microchip design engineer and trainer. He often traveled to Europe, teaching engineers how to use computer simulation programs. He worked for various companies in California’s Silicon Valley.
Dave was an artist, a musician, a gymnast, a bee- keeper, a glider pilot and a leading authority and designer of alternative energy components.
He was also a lover of Jesus, and active in The Net of Prayer. A desire of Dave’s he often spoke about was to ask Jesus to take him on a tour of the universe and galaxies before entering Heaven.
Dave lived a life of wonder and was fascinated by all of creation. He was fearless in his pursuit of knowledge and his engineering work.
David fought a brave five-and-a-half-year battle against cancer that was caused by Agent Orange from his time spent in Vietnam. The cancer began as prostate cancer, spreading to bones and finally into his brain.
He was much loved by both his family and friends and will be greatly missed.
