If Dave couldn’t fix it, it was really broken. David would help anybody- no matter the situation. He learned most things through first hand experience and taught himself along the way. He was considered a jack of all trades. David enjoyed riding his motorcycle, snowmobiling, four wheeling, fishing, hunting, and spending time with family and friends.
