David Martin Graifman was Vice President of Keefe, Bruyette & Woods located on the 89th floor of 2 World Trade Center. He was an Equity Analyst following the unique field of Specialty Finance, Bond, Title and Mortgage insurance.

His Pithy quotes were often sought by professional magazines and journals. David was a mentor to many and is remembered by his many friends for his humor and kindness. David was a generous, intelligent, witty and caring human being, who lived life to the fullest. He was also an avid watch collector, Mets fan and music lover and was a self-taught guitarist. David grew up in Rockland County, graduating from Ramapo High School in Spring Valley, the State University of New York at Buffalo, and the Stern School of Business, New York University, where he obtained his MBA in Finance.

David resided in Manhattan for the last 17 years and planned to move to a house in Irvington, NY. David will be forever missed by his entire family and his dear friends. He was a loving devoted husband to Christine Huhn, a cherished son to Ruth and Julius Graifman, a loving brother to Gary and Brian Graifman.

Because David had a long term desire to teach economics with liberal slant, a scholarship has been set up to help some student in the future.
