David grew up a third generation farmer in Morse, Texas. He attended Texas Tech University and then returned to his family's farm. He was a dedicated farmer who took great pride and care of his land, crops, equipment, and animals. David loved deep fried Southern food smothered in gravy, cheeseburgers and fries, Western movies, teasing his family, and Reese's peanut butter cups. Not necessarily in that order. Everyone who knew him regarded his light-hearted spirit, calm demeanor, and quiet strength.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Jack, Jr. and Wilma.
David was extremely loving and proud of his three daughters, Alexis, Lisa, and Amanda. He is also survived by his dedicated wife Gail; his brother and best friend, Mike and his wife Carla; his sister Kaye; his two delightful step-daughters; five son-in-laws; ten precious grandchildren; as well as his many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and other friends
