He was a member of the Sons of AMVETS Post 87 and the VFW Auxiliary Post 8054.  He enjoyed having coffee with the group of guys at McDonalds where they would gossip and try to solve the world’s problems.  Many of his friends referred to him as “Walter.”

David loved watching the Cleveland Browns, Ohio State Buckeyes and NASCAR.

Most of all, David cherished time spent with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
