He was a retired tool and die supervisor from the Chrysler Warren Stamping Plant. He was an avid fisherman and liked spending his days in a boat trolling for walleye, perch, crappie, and bluegill. In the summer months he liked to be on the jet skis, four wheelers, and camping with his family enjoying the great outdoors. In the winter months he loved to be on his snowmobile or ice fishing. To relax, Dave enjoyed wood working, gardening, and caring for his Koi pond and salt water fish aquarium.
