A graduate of West Branch High School and Mount Union College, David received his Master’s Degree from the University of Akron.

David enjoyed painting, gardening, and tending the flower beds. He had a love for music, playing the organ and accordian, and he especially cherished his annual Christmas musical; but his greatest love was his love for Christ, his family and friends.
