David graduated from Breathitt High School in Jackson, KY and received his bachelor degree in education from Morehead State University in Morehead, KY. David spent his career educating young people in both Mansfield City Schools and the Northmor Local School District.
David loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, 4-wheeling, and gardening. In his later years, he spent hours watching the birds and wildlife from various windows in his home and making sure that anyone nearby saw them too.
