David grew up in Camden and graduated from Richmond High School. After High School he began his career at Ideal Industries and was one of the original five to start working there. David was a tender-hearted, loving, and caring person. He enjoyed raising chickens with his brother who still has several of them. He collected aluminum cans and was known as the “Can Man” at work.
