David attended Mesa public schools and graduated from ASU.
David was retired and led a happy fulfilling life, he honorably served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 2 years in Bolivia. David also held many callings and leadership positions throughout his lifetime in the church.
David loved the Gospel of Jesus Christ and his family. He loved to show support and be at as many events and activities as he could for his children and grandchildren. He loved to travel, he loved it not only for the destinations but more importantly the beautiful journey that it took to get there and who he was with. He always had a camera and was ready to take any number of random pictures at any time. To him everything had beauty and he saw it; not only in nature but in people as well. He loved to laugh and tell dad jokes. He loved to try new and different cuisines, and spending time in Rocky Point Mexico with his family. He will be extremely missed by all.

I ran around with David all through high school. He was a great guy and always fun to be with. I have great memories of all the stuff we did
