David was an¬†avid collector of many things; antique tractors, Hot Wheels, model cars, and so much more.¬† He and his sons spent many an evening out in the shop working on cars, and whatever else needed fixing at the time.¬† He wasn’t happy if he didn’t have a tool in his hand and¬†a project to work on.¬†He won several awards at work for his ingenuity and his¬†hard work, and won several awards for his antique tractor collection in several fairs and tractor pull.
David was many things to so many people: son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, serviceman and so many more.  He will be missed by many, but will never be forgotten for all the lives he has touched.
