They raised two children, whom were taught to work hard, play hard, and cherish family.He was a dedicated and hardworking man who always but his family first. Always actively involved with his community and his neighborhood, he played basketball until his knees no longer could take it. It was at this time David took up golf and grew to love the sport he never thought he would play. One of his great joys in life was to go to the lake with his family. Whether it was fishing, tubing, or just spending time with family on the water. The time with his children and grandchildren was special to him, and to those he spent it with. His sense of humor, dedication, and loving presence will be deeply missed.
