You could find him on a nice day out riding his motorcycle around the city, walking his cat or relaxing on the beach watching the waves crash against the sand. He was devoted to his family, especially his grandchildren. He would go to any sporting event they were a part of. His grandchildren were his world and they would always bring a smile to his face. David fought a courageous, dignified battle with cancer and will be missed by all whom he loved.
