Professionally, he is most known for his time spent with Lefever Plumbing & Heating, Elkhart and Ritter Electric, Syracuse. Those that knew him personally remember him as a caring, helpful person with a passion for helping others. David received training under the CERT program which would allow him to be deployed to disaster zones if needed. He was a lover of the outdoors and enjoyed kayaking, hunting, and hiking.
