David graduated from Washington Irving High School in Clarksburg. He attended vocational school and worked as a welder in a machine shop for many years, until his retirement. David was very fond of his family and spent most of his free time with them. He spent a lot of time this summer swimming and laying out in the sun. He was particularly fond of his great niece and nephew and spent as much time with them as he could. David loved fishing and bringing his catches home for a good fish fry. He was also an avid cook and enjoyed making Sunday breakfast for his loved ones to enjoy after church. David was a mischievous person and loved to smile, laugh, and have fun with those he loved. He will be greatly missed by all who remember him.
