In his youth, David enjoyed playing outside with his siblings. They would play on rock buttes by the snake river near their home. Avoiding rattlesnakes was common practice during their many adventures on the rock buttes. As children they would swim in the canals to pass the hot summer days. To do so was still safe back then, that was before the introduction of chemicals into the canal water.
By the time David reached adulthood not much had changed, he still loved the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, boating, anything that got him out in nature.
David graduated from Minico High School, Rupert, Idaho, in 1960. Shortly after high school he married Carolyn Miller. They had four children; Annette, Alan, Gregory and Brian.

He had a big heart and would help anyone he could. His deep love for his family was obvious in his actions every day.
