David was also an avid home brewer. He loved to share his newest creation with friends and family. David had a love for motorcycle riding. Besides his family and friends his Harley Davidson was his pride and joy. Every year he looked forward to riding in the Vermont Thunder ride on Memorial Day weekend. David became a staple of the ride for his wild and creative costumes, quickly becoming a crowd favorite. Most of all David loved spending time with his family. The lasting impressions he made on everyone\u0027s life will never be forgotten.
