A quiet and unassuming man, David loved the Lord and his family and will be remembered for his years of dedicated Christian Service and community outreach and engagement as well as for the many lives that he directly and indirectly impacted. David never met a stranger and was always willing to help those in need. He served as a deacon, Sunday School teacher, Awana leader, and youth leader at Lake Hills Baptist Church in Schererville. Over the years, he also spent a great deal of time serving in Courtside and Door of Hope Ministries among others. 

David was a die-hard Cubs fan and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, travel, playing games, model building, and vintage television.
