Dave was born March 17, 1956 in Troy, Ohio. He proudly served his country in the United States Army. Dave was a field engineer for Kodak and Konica Minolta for 32 years.

Dave was a very outgoing person and could carry a conversation with anyone. He enjoyed watching Nascar racing, and football. He loved going on road trips with his wife, Valerie, family cookouts, swimming in the pool with his grandchildren; but most of all sitting on the beach in his chair just watching the grandchildren and listening to the waves.
