David was a proud United States Marine and didn't mind voicing so. He loved his family and friends and would help anyone in need, no wasn't in his vocabulary. His wife, sons and grandchildren were his life. David's hobby's included traveling and motorcycles, which he absolutely loved his motorcycle. He was funny and always cutting up and making jokes.

David will be greatly missed by his family, co-workers, friends and all that knew him especially Rebecca Mason Staples who won't know how to act without him and his practical jokes.
