David Kenneth Guite, a parochial school principal and former Glen Burnie resident, died Saturday in George West, Texas, after being injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident. He was 40.

Mr. Guite was born in Baltimore and raised in Glen Burnie. He was a 1984 graduate of Glen Burnie High School, where he had been an outstanding varsity basketball and soccer player.

He earned a bachelor's degree in political science in 1988 from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and a law degree in 1991 from the University of Baltimore.

In 1997, he moved to San Francisco, worked as a youth minister at a Roman Catholic church in San Lorenzo, Calif., and earned a master's degree in parochial school administration from the University of San Francisco's Institute for Catholic Educational Leadership.

He moved to Houston in 2000 and taught at St. Pius X Parochial School before being named principal of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Elementary School in Galena Park, Texas, in 2002.

Mr. Guite maintained an interest in politics and had been assisting his uncle, Del. David G. Boschert, a Crownsville Republican, in his primary race for Anne Arundel County executive.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today at Our Lady of the Fields Roman Catholic Church, 1070 Cecil Ave. S., Millersville.
