David began working at the Chrysler Electrical Plant in 1965 until it closed. He then transferred to the Chrysler Foundry in Indianapolis until he retired in 2001. David served in the United States Army for two years. He was a selfless and hardworking man who would do anything for anyone. He sacrificed to provide for his family and to ensure his children received a good education. He loved being down at the lake with his family and with a fishing pole in his hand. Being outside in the heat was one of his favorite things as well as going to Ponderosa for his senior discount.
