David was either a long haul truck driver or auto mechanic for his entire working career. He loved to go fishing and was an avid NASCAR fan. His favorite drivers included Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and both Dale Earnharts. In reality, he liked any driver as long as they were in a Chevrolet car. In his later years, he became known as the neighborhood guard and would keep watch from his chair in the garage. Most times with a cigarette in hand.
