Having just celebrated the 57 years of his marriage to Dorothy Overholt, David was also the proud father of Kathryn, Jonathan and Dara. Having a generous spirit and a loving heart he was a great example of how to be inclusive. His friends and loved ones could expect to be greeted with a warm smile and a sincere hug always making others feel loved and cared for. He lived life with gusto and loved to travel. In his 70s he went skydiving with his daughter and at 82 (only 8 months ago) was hiking and exploring caves with his family in Hawaii.

He also helped construct the building for the Community of Christ in Burt, Michigan where he was the pastor for many years. As a minister David had the honor of joining 99 couples in marriage.
