He spent many special moments with his immediate family, nephews, niece, aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends.
He will be fondly remembered for his enthusiasm for birthdays, holidays and celebrations of all kinds. David was an accepting, loving, and intuitive soul who welcomed all into his world. David was an avid swimmer and some of his other favorite activities included sailing, 5 - star camping, attending barbeques, bonfires and golfing. David liked watching sports and was an active participant in brotherly wrestling, boxing, sliding and impromptu football games.
