A remarkably gifted craftsman and cabinet maker by trade, Dave worked for many years as a remodeling contractor before his subsequent retirement in 2020. He was a gifted woodworker and some of his creations in his own home and for others are nothing short of spectacular. He loved all types of music, from classic rock to Bob Marley. He enjoyed being surrounded by nature, whether it be watching birds or hiking and most recently he had found a passion for cooking. He was an avid sports enthusiast and enjoyed football but also enjoyed coaching his son’s basketball team at a time. David was an easy-going, free spirit, people person with a knack for carrying on long conversations with people he had just met. He also was renowned for his ability to provide nicknames for everyone he had acquaintances with, whether you were aware of those names or not.
