He was a long time resident of Phoenix, AZ and a graduate of Arizona State University and the University of Arizona College of Law. He served in the U. S.

He practiced law for more than thirty-five years during which he was a member of the Federal Public Defender's Office as well as a Superior Court Judge. He was hard working, diligent, and extremely honest in all that he did. He found much enjoyment in helping others in time of need whether it be family members, a Phoenix Youth or a child in a foreign country. David was a dutiful and thoughtful nephew, a caring husband and a loving father. He is survived by his daughters Alison Grootveld and Jennifer Evers, his wife Grace and an extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends.
