The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to David. If there were a few words that could be used to describe David by his friends, they would be "one of a kind"; "strong-minded"; even tempered"; "wise"; and "witty" by the ones who were closest to him. David's personality was contagious to everyone he met and will be greatly missed.
A private service will be held to celebrate and memorialize David on January 30th, 2021 at 12:00 PM.
