David grew up in Lincoln NE where he cultivated interests in culinary arts, body building, health and wellness, and travel. He enjoyed spending time at the lake with his friends and his dog Ruca. David’s love of food and passion for cooking, found him often making a mess in the kitchen creating fond memories with friends and family. While David was not the oldest child, he took on the role of protector for his siblings always going the extra mile for them.

David had an adventurous spirit and lived life to its fullest. He spent time travelling with his fiancé Marni O’Neill. His recent trip to Hawaii with his fiancé Marni he described as a trip of a life time. David was fortunate enough to find the love of his life back in 2014 when he was sick in the hospital.

David shared his passion for health and wellness working as a personal trainer in Portland.
