David was a 2007 graduate of Southside High School and was employed at Cameron Manufacturing as a welder prior to his kidney illness. David was a member of the Wellsburg Volunteer Fire Department where he was formerly Assistant Seceretary and a member of the West Elmira Fire Department. He was devoted to his community, his family and friends. In his spare time David enjoyed four wheeling, building, buying and selling sporting guns and shooting at the range. He was also an avid hunter and fisherman. His zest for life was absolutely unwavering and he could always get a smile from you with his natural ability to crack a joke or just say the right thing. When David wasn't busy helping others he could be found with his daughter Olivia at his side. They were inseparable and their love for each other was a joy to witness.
