David graduated from Tech High School in 1982, after graduation he started his career in the granite industry where he worked for over 25 years. He was a devoted father to Danielle and Tyler, attending many of their activities and supporting them through their life. David loved cutting wood, being outside, tinkering with things and spending time with loved ones.  He was always offering to help others, even when it became difficult for him to do so. David stressed the importance to his children of the golden rule, to treat others, as you want to be treated. David experienced a lengthy battle with cancer, dealt with a lot of changes within his life, but he never let it change who he was. He tried to continue to live his life, but there were daily obstacles that gradually made it more challenging.
