David was born March 3, 1934, in Lafayette, Georgia where he graduated from Hill High School and was an accomplished athlete in baseball, basketball, and football. David was a proud twenty-year U. S. Army veteran, who enlisted in 1953 and served stateside, in Vietnam, Germany, and Okinawa, Japan. He received his honorable discharge in 1973 at Fort Carson, Colorado.
David entered law enforcement as a Deputy Sheriff in El Paso County, Colorado in 1974 and faithfully worked until his retirement in 1995. During his twenty-one years in the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, he served in the Honor Guard and represented the Sheriff’s office in a variety of events: Denver Bronco Football games, the Colorado State Fair, and the El Paso County parade on several occasions. During this time, David was also a proud member of the Fraternal Order of Police.
For the next fifteen years, David was employed by Colorado Springs School District 11, Mountain View Medical Group, and Falcon School District 49. He was a community volunteer and served on the Supervisory Committee at Pikes Peak Credit Union.
David was an active member of Morgan Memorial church and served as Deacon. He later attended Springs Community Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he sang in the choir, served as an usher and greeter, and the pre-service Coffee Bar. He was also a member of the Ironman Bible study group.
He was a Denver Broncos super football fan, and enthusiastically cheered and supported his son’s middle school and high school football teams. He loved to camp, fish, barbecue, play poker in our home with his good friends Mac M and Jim B and ride his ATV, which he often used to plow snow for his neighbors in snowy Colorado.
