David was an amazing husband, father, and grandfather.
He had many hobbies: photography, fishing, cooking, buying treasures for his grand-kids and astronomy. He knew a little bit about everything. Working on cars, fixing everything around the house. He liked to stay busy all the time with either his hobbies and family. It was hard for him to stay still. He always had a project of some sort going on.
He is missed so much by everyone who knew him.
He was a wonderfully smart man that left an amazing legacy behind.
