David was a fun loving, generous individual, who loved to goof around, but would do anything for anyone. He enjoyed going to garage sales, flea markets, and attending gun and tractor shows. He liked rides on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. He enjoyed trips to Myrtle Beach. Most of all, David loved spending time with his family. Special times were spent watching old military movies, snowmobiling, working outdoors, and having family campfires and cookouts. Precious times were spent with his son, Tony, fixing old radios in the garage. David also enjoyed special times with his daughter, Beth, relaxing and watching movies, especially cartoons.
