In his spare time, David was an avid fan of Notre Dame football, and enjoyed going to stock car and drag races with his family and friends. He had many friends and was very social. Often at gatherings at his home, he would be found behind the grill using his talent for cooking to feed his friends and family. He also was a very hard worker and will be remembered by many as a “go to” guy who would volunteer his time and skills to fix things around other people’s homes without expecting anything in return.
