David Weiss, principal oboe and photographer of the Los Angeles Philharmonic for 30 years, died last weekend at the age of 67. The LA Times reports, after talking to the Weiss family, that David collapsed while surfing off the Pacific Palisades. The cause of death has not been ascertained.

Far too soon, and deeply mourned.
