David Dye '74

Division VP/CFO of HCA

David Dye was initiated into the Beta-Nu chapter of Kappa Sigma in 1974 and shortly after became an involved member of the chapter. During his four years in college, he served as Grand Scribe and various other roles including Pledge Trainer, Rush Chairman and Social Chairman. David expanded his involvement to the Fraternity to a position outside of his chapter, becoming an officer on the UK Intrafraternity Council (IFC), working with men from all different chapters at the university. Along with his involvement in the Beta-Nu chapter, David was also a familiar face on campus participating in many intramural sports and was the Fraternity Intramural Champion in the “prestigious” sports of Horseshoes and Croquet. In 1977 David graduated from the University of Kentucky with a B.S. in Accounting. He went on to earn his CPA credentials and began working for HCA Healthcare (Hospital Corporation of America). During his time working in the healthcare industry, he became the CFO of several HCA hospitals, spending the majority of his career in Florida. In 2005 he became the VP/CFO of the HCA North Florida Division where he had responsibility for approximately 20 hospitals and their affiliated Surgery Centers and Physician Practices. He successfully carried out this position until he retired in December 2013 after 34 years of service to HCA.

David is married to Lois (a Kappa Sigma Sweetheart), and together they have two daughters and four grandkids.

Much like the dedication that David showed to his work, he continues to show that same dedication to the Beta-Nu chapter of Kappa Sigma, traveling from Florida and Tennessee to be at Beta-Nu events and Hall of Fame dinners. David explains the importance of the chapter to him as, “The Beta-Nu Chapter of Kappa Sigma is where I developed the closest friendships of my life. But my fraternity experience went beyond close friends and good times. The Beta-Nu Chapter helped me develop leadership and organizational skills that carried into my work life. Whether it was serving as Rush Chairman, Social Chairman, Pledge Trainer or Officer, the skillsets associated with these roles helped in my development and played a major role in my career success.” David is known by all his friends to be a true Kappa Sigma and borrowing the words from Bononia Docet to explain the amazing father, friend and alumni that David is, they say “The Star and Crescent shall not be worn by every man, but only by him who is worthy to wear it. He must be a gentleman...a man of honor and courage...a man of zeal, yet intelligent man...a man of who tempers action with wisdom and, above all else, one who walks in the light of God”.
