David was born in Philadelphia to the late Joseph and Estelle (nee Haddon). After school, he enlisted in the military and proudly served his country in the United States Navy during the Vietnam Era. Following his military service, he worked for the Philadelphia School District as a dispatcher for 32 years, while raising his family in the Fishtown section of the city. A proud Philadelphian, he loved his Philadelphia sports teams such as Phillies, Soul and especially his beloved Eagles. He loved food and loved to go out to eat and BBQ with family. He loved gardening, fishing, older country and western music and enjoying his beer. His greatest joy came from his family. He will be remembered by them as being devoted to them and also very silly, always joking about everything, including farts, as he would call Faarts. They will miss him but take comfort in knowing that he will be reunited with his family, especially his grandons.
