Treasurer/Santa - DAVID WALDRIP


Dave is a retired USCG warrant officer. His Flying Santa connections go back to 1993 when he was officer in charge of Aids to Navigation Team Boston. He hosted a Santa landing at Newburyport Harbor Light for his crew's families. The following year he was invited to don the Santa suit for our Massachusetts flight. Except for a short break in the late 90s when he was stationed in Alaska, Dave has continued to share the role. Dave is also a charter boat captain and runs offshore trips for a variety of fish aboard his vessel RELENTLESS. He lives in Rockland, MA with his wife Diane.
