At a younger age, David enjoyed taking his horses for rides up in the Panoche Valley. Not only was David a dedicated farmer, he was also a proud rancher. He spent a great deal of time doing cattle branding and enjoyed good food at family gatherings with his family and friends. When David wasn't out working, he enjoyed watching cowboy movies on his favorite western channel while eating a delicious homemade hamburger with a tall glass of soda. David had a sweet tooth and always enjoyed the taste of candy when he was home. David was always in the company of his best buddy and family dog: Jake. David was always willing to help others in need and will be greatly missed by those he helped and by his loved ones. David was always blessed and was surrounded by family and friends that truly loved him. He will be remembered greatly for his dedicated work, sense of humor, and for the great person he was.
