David was a graduate of the University of Dayton having obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering. His engineering career spanned 33 years with over 20 years of that spent employed by Delphi, where he would eventually be recognized with numerous awards and patents. David was also a devoted member of the Beavercreek Church of the Brethren for more than 40 years and supported the church in many ways including playing softball, as a board member and in various other volunteer roles. Other community volunteer work included as an assistant counselor at Woodland Altars Campground in Peebles, OH as well as in a variety of roles for Kettering Medical Center and the Beavercreek Senior Center. David’s love of music led to his participation in many singing ventures to include the men’s choir at church, Kettering Senior Chorus, and multiple barbershop choruses out of Xenia. David had a light-hearted personality and was known as quite the pun aficionado who will forever be remembered as a good husband, father, and grandfather who took special care of his family.
