                HONORING THE LIFE AND WORK OF DAVID CULP

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. EARL BLUMENAUER

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, February 7, 2017

  Mr. BLUMENAUER. Mr. Speaker, I would like to honor the life and work 
of David Culp who passed away over the weekend.
  This is a monumental loss to supporters of peace everywhere. David's 
tireless efforts in promoting sane nuclear policies and fighting for a 
safer world spanned decades.
  David was a ``go-to'' advocate in the arms control community. Many, 
including myself, relied on his advice, knack for technical details on 
policy proposals, political insights, and collaborative focus. He 
played an instrumental role in the campaign to secure Senate 
ratification of the New START treaty and in the defeat of legislative 
proposals to proliferate new nuclear weapons.
  Not only was David a wise, steadfast, effective voice for 
disarmament, but he was kind and genuine--a true pleasure to be around. 
His good nature came through in his personal life, where he spent time 
working to preserve the environment and enjoying the outdoors. His 
involvement in the cleanup of the Anacostia River is but one example.
  My deepest condolences go out to those near and dear to him. He will 
be missed, and I hope his family, friends and colleagues take some 
measure of solace in the knowledge that he has made a tremendous 
difference.
