Outside of the military and work, David loved hunting and running. He loved to travel, especially to Costa Rica. He spent a lot of his time helping and serving kids in the community to achieve their fitness goals through sports and powerlifting. David would give the shirt off of his back  to anyone who needed it. He loved to joke and tell stories. He was the glue that held his family together and kept everyone laughing and smiling. He was the best father, son, brother, uncle, and friend anyone could have asked for.
