David served his country in the US Army and followed with employment as a performance consultant with Kellogg, Brown, & Root, Inc., and project director at Avco Corporation. He had served as cubmaster with the Boy Scouts in Huber Heights as well as a soccer coach for the Gemini Optical team. An avid car buff, David enjoyed maintaining and fixing his vehicles, and he also was a talented woodworker.

Survivors include three children, Kathy (Tim) Kauffman of Springfield, Doug Syling of Beavercreek, Julie (Steve) Lucas of Franklin; grandchildren, Shelby and Brady; as well as other extended family, and friends.
