We mourn the loss of another energy icon. David J. DeAngelo, 76, passed away on October 15, 2021. David was a past Treasurer (1989) of IAEE and past president (2000) of the United States Association for Energy Economics (USAEE).

David’s fine analytical mind and research ability was second to none. Most of his career was spent with Pennsylvania Power & Light (PPL), one of the nation’s largest utility companies, where he was Manager of Fuel Planning and Statistics. He also performed energy policy analysis for NATO at the U.S. Military Academy, as well as at the Pentagon. He was an instructor in business planning and fuel procurement at U.S. Aid which led him to sponsored programs in Egypt, India and the Ukraine. David served with honor with the United States Army where he achieved rank of Lt. Colonel, his last assignment representing West Point in the Lehigh Valley where he interviewed possible applicants.

David graduated from Lehigh University where he earned a BS in Business Administration and an MS in Business Economics; he was a member of Phi Kappa Theta fraternity. David was very active with Lehigh University, sponsoring the establishment of a USAEE Chapter on campus and assisting in the organizing of energy events. A true lover of wrestling, he and Bobbi would travel the states watching the Lehigh Wrestling Club in action.

I grew really close to David during his leadership years with the USAEE. He served as Secretary-Treasurer (1996), VP Conferences (1998) and eventually as President of USAEE. He single handedly organized the Philadelphia (2000) North American conference of USAEE/IAEE.

David would often call the office and we would talk at length about the energy industries, his state in retirement, what he and Bobbi were up to, family life and his love of wine. I learned much from David during his active time with the Associations. True to form, he passed on many analytical tips to me, how to approach complex issues with a cool head and, how to appreciate and source fine wines.

David is survived by his loving wife Bobbi, son Adrian and wife Emily and two grandsons, Luca Anthony and William Lorenzo.

He will be missed deeply by his family, friends and colleagues.
