David loved his family so much and was always thinking of them and sharing fun stories about them to anyone that would listen.

He also enjoyed watching movies and TV shows like Ancient Aliens, Chuck, Longmire, Justified and Breaking Bad.
He had delightful sense of humor and would constantly tease everyone he met. Making friends came so easily to him, it seemed like he could meet someone new, and they'd be great friends within minutes. He enjoyed Hunting, Fishing, Farm work, Cows and Tractors. He looked for every opportunity to spend time and bond with his grandkids, Tayten and Kabreyla, he was beyond proud of them.
