David graduated from Canal Winchester High School and Franklin University and served in Germany in the U.S. Army. David worked for many years at Winchester Farms, was Past President of the CW Lions Club and retired from Buckeye Honda after 26 years of service. His passion for Hondas led him into becoming one of the top salesmen in the U.S. In retirement he worked for CW Human Services as a Senior Transportation driver. After his family, David’s great love and dedication was to Hope United Methodist Church where he served faithfully and sang in his beloved choir, back row and second from the right. David also loved American antiques, good wine, good coffee and smoked cheap cigars. David’s deep faith in God gives us comfort that he is now at peace.
