He was an active member of Terre Haute German Oberlandler Club and served as president for a number of years, and loved Oktoberfest.
David never knew a stranger and always had a smile for everyone he saw. He especially loved children, his own and his grandchildren, and those he encountered while driving a school bus.
David and Nancy enjoyed traveling and made a bucket list to visit 50 states, 50 countries, and 5 continents by their fiftieth anniversary. They were able to complete their goal. He was always ready for a new adventure.
