David was always about honor, dignity, respect, and love of family. He was always the strongest man we had ever known.

He was always the hardest worker in the room. He worked many years at Gould battery and drove semi. There was never anything he couldn’t fix. He enjoyed working and fixing things others deemed unrepairable.

Goodbye Superman !
