David lived most of his life in Upper Arlington, Ohio. He graduated from Bexley High School and attended The Ohio State University. He was an outstanding salesman, master story teller and practical joker. His career began at the Franklin Candy Company where he worked before becoming a successful executive recruiter at Blackwood, Sachs and Giller. He found his true passion; however, in the third chapter of his career where he worked as a stone mason (Sachs Masonry). David took great pride in his work and the artistry it required; his many projects included Emerald Park Bridge, Mirror Lake, and Northbank Park. He was truly a master at his craft.
David was a talented athlete, he was exceedingly proud of the National titles he won as a member of the Hi-State flag football team in 1976 and 1977.
Friends and family will remember him most for his ability to make them laugh; He was always the life of the party. David was blessed to have many cherished friends who he greatly appreciated for their support and kindness throughout his life. David’s wonderful personality enriched many lives and we will always carry his memory in our hearts.
