Starting at an entry level position and promoting steadily throughout his career to eventually a Project Manager. He was very proud of the many relationships he made throughout his career and life.
A small family service was held at Richardson’s Mortuary in Benson on Saturday, October 24, 2020. After the service a small graveside service was held at Saint David Cemetery, where David was laid to rest near his family. Many in attendance shared heartfelt examples of David’s giving and generous nature, indeed, David would often stop to help someone, and end up making a friend of them. Often, these new friendships lasted for the rest of his life.
