David fought many battles in his lifetime, including being diagnosed with polio at age 2. He was an active member of Narcotics Anonymous, and would have celebrated 7 years of clean time on June 2, 2018. David enjoyed playing guitar, fishing and reading. He was a man of strong faith, and devoted much of his time to praying and working on his relationship with God. His greatest pride was being a father and grandfather.
