David loved woodworking and baking, especially his famous “Santa snacks”. He had worked as a mechanic and in the family construction business over the years. He was loved and greatly missed by many, especially several very close friends, Joe, Christine, Maureen, Karen and Tim. His door was always open for a visit, a cup of coffee, laughter and great conversation. If desired, memorial donations may be made in his honor to one of the charities he supported, St. Jude’s or Wounded Warriors. The family will make arrangements for a memorial celebration of life at their convenience.
