Kirchman on September 29, 1938, in Van Buren, Arkansas. He went to Sophia Meyer Grade School and Junior High and High Schools in Van Buren, graduating with honors. David was active in Music, Drama and Journalism while working as a Soda Jerk at Langston's Drug Store. Ft. Smith Junior College was the beginning of his college years where he was active in choir while working fulltime at Winton's IGA. College was completed at the University of Arkansas where he received his Bachelors's Degree in Industrial Management while working 40 hours a week at Piggly Wiggly Grocery.

David was married to Hazel Ruth Brannam on August 9, 1959 in Van Buren, Arkansas.

That meant hayrides, trips, grubby games, overnights, staying up all night with discouraged kids, trying to help them wrestle their way through tough moral problems, weekly Bible studies at our home, and anything he felt the Lord wanted him to do to help his "kids". He was always grateful to be a part of their lives and help them in their walk with God.

Kirchman, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and sister Bette Jo Kirchman Crites of Norman, OK and Granddaughter, Whitney Elise Kirchman, who lives in Heaven with her Grandpa.
