David was full of life, anyone that ever met him was sure to always remember him. David loved his family more than anything. He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, giving golf cart rides, driving through the woods, fishing, picking berries, pretty much anything that had to do with being outside, working on old cars and helping others with almost anything. David was a happy guy, always laughing, smiling and joking. He will be missed dearly.
