David W. Fleming, 36, a former self-storage manager and columnist for Inside Self-Storage (ISS) magazine, passed away on March 17. David started his self-storage career in Oaks, Penn., where he became the winner of the ISS "Manager of the Year" award for 2000, one of his proudest moments. He went on to co-manage facilities with his wife, Tina; and the couple moved through several states where David served as area manager, trainer, regional manager and director of operations for some of the industry's finest operators.
David loved meeting new people and speaking to groups. He presented at many state and national tradeshows on "Successful Facility Management." His ISS column, "From Behind the Counter," provided managers with a hands-on perspective of the industry. He will be greatly missed by his self-storage friends and co-workers.
A trust has been set up for David's son. Donations can be sent to:
