Shortly after he voluntarily enlisted in the United States Army in January 1966 and served a combat tour during the Vietnam War. Upon his return from war, he began a career at Monsanto, which later became MEMC, and retired after more than thirty years of employment. He had a lifelong respect for wildlife conservation and was a founding member of the original Old Monroe chapter of Ducks Unlimited. Through his love of hunting and fishing, he mentored many young hunters and anglers along the way, sharing stories and life lessons that expand far beyond the limits of a fishing boat or duck blind. As a veteran himself, he held the upmost respect for our country, those who have served and those currently serving. He was loved and respected by many and will truly be missed. Due do the pandemic and per his wishes, David will be laid to rest at Jefferson Barracks in a private family service. A public celebration of life will take place in the future when safety permits.
