1992 - DeWayne Quinn

DeWayne Quinn, his father, Val, and Dave Camboia pose for a photo before departing on the Walt Gray charity motorcycle ride in 2009.

DeWayne Quinn (B.A., political science, ’92) chose a living tribute to honor the memory of David Camboia (B.A, chemistry, ’93)—a contribution to an “Adopt an Acre” program at UC Davis' Russell Ranch sustainable research farm. Camboia, of Tracy, died in September 2015. “The Camboias are farmers from Gustine, so this gift seemed to resonate with his life and his background,” Quinn said. The two men had been friends since their days playing defense for the Aggie football team. Quinn today is head of a global information systems department at Apple Inc.
