Dave proudly served in the US Army as an Army Ranger during the Vietnam War. He worked with Wolhan Lumber Company and would later be employed with Dayton-Cox Airport.

He loved the kids, who often referred to him as Uncle Dave. He enjoyed riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle and being out in the country. Dave loved NFL Football, especially pulling for the Steelers. Listening to 1960's music, rhythm and blues, and playing his harmonica was also a special past time for Dave.
