David Adams Case, of Yellow Springs, died peacefully on Aug. 3, 2014. He was 92.
 
David was born in Rochester, N.Y., on March 31, 1922, and lived most of his youth on Staten Island, N.Y. He learned to sail on Conesus Lake in western New York at the family summer home, and spent his teenage years refining and racing his small sloop, the “Bubble,” on New York Harbor. He crewed on the second-place winner in the North American Junior Championships and with that came as close as he ever would to qualifying for the America’s Cup race.
