Dave attended the Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church in Reading.
He enjoyed golfing with his grandsons and especially attending golf tournaments with his friends from CVS.
He was a proud and loving grandfather who enjoyed taking his grandsons on many trips as they were growing up and attending their school activities and sporting events. He especially loved going on rollercoasters with them.

Auchenbach of Fleetwood, and Joseph P. Auchenbach, husband of Sarah (Plank) of Fleetwood, and the apple of his eye, his great-grandson, Nicholas Scott, who brought him so much love and laughter.
