He was born November 5, 1929, in Batavia, New York, the son of Percy Tapp and Mae Gay. He served honorably in the US Army as a Medic for two years. In 1953 he moved to California where he met the love of his life, Elma "Sam" Blankenship, who became his wife in 1954 and moved to Manhattan Beach in the late 1950's. David enjoyed motorcycles, photography, road trips and camping with his wife throughout the USA in their recreational vehicle. They lived life to its fullest. David is survived by his brother, Ron, and wife, Keiko. At the request of David, there will be no services. His ashes will be scattered off the coast of Manhattan Beach in the same area where his wife who preceded him was laid to rest.
