He attended Dean Morgan Junior High School and graduated from Natrona County High School in Casper. He then went on to receive a degree from Casper College in Automotive Mechanics.

He learned how to repair sewing machines from a friend and went to work for the Wyoming Sewing Center until he started the business Sew Fix It, that he owned and operated for over 25 years. Technically, David retired from the sewing machine industry but he remained very active tinkering around his home. He could fix anything. He had two children, Chance and Misty. He met and then married Cathy D. Walker in 2003. Together they would enjoy snowshoeing, camping, fishing, arrowhead hunting, but his main love would be to work around his home. He loved to work with his hands, building, welding, and putting together things. He was also a great musician, he played the guitar and sang beautifully. He especially loved gospel and the old cowboy songs. David sang in the Glory Road Gospel Band, performing at the local nursing homes, churches, prisons, and other community locations to share his love of the Lord. He was a very loving and kind man to everyone he met, having big warm hugs to give to anyone. He will be remembered as the most gentle spirited man, he was a true gentleman and had such a love for his family.
