David was a private man who held his friends close and his family closer. He enjoyed nothing more than to spend quality time with his son and best friend and cook steak together. David was an avid Red Sox fan, never missing an opportunity to yell at the TV in excitement or disgust! He loved fishing for trout in the streams in Montgomery with his father, Uncle Pat, and old friend Vincent Mitchell. David had a true passion and talent for playing the guitar, he loved all music but especially Bob Dylan. His family describes him as a kind, loving soul, a gentle giant with a heart of gold. David loved everyone. He worked at Best Friends Diner, where his coworkers truly became family.
