UCSB Student Remembered By Friends

We are learning more about the UCSB student found dead at the bottom of the cliffs in Isla Vista early Friday morning. 21-year-old David Propp was a senior who was very involved in campus life and his death came as a shock to those who knew him.

Propp was from Missoula, Montana and sang in a popular acappella group on campus called, ‘Brothas From Otha Mothas” or BFOM as it’s affectionately known on campus. He majored in physics and worked at the UCSB Recreation Center. We’re told he was beloved by many who worked there.

The Recreation Center released this statement to KEY News: “David was a beloved member of our Rec Cen family. He was someone that everyone could look up to and learn from. His happiness was infectious, and he brightened the day of everyone around him. He is sorely missed, fondly remembered, and dearly loved.”

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department is investigating to find out exactly when and how Propp died. They say his injuries are consistent with a fall from the cliff. Propp’s memorial will be held at the UCSB Recreation Center at 2 o’clock on Wednesday, November 14th.
