During his younger years, he boxed in the Navy, played rugby, soccer and bowled. He remained very active throughout his life playing golf and proudly securing an Albatross on Hole # 4 at Airway Meadows Golf Course. He loved to hunt on French Mountain with his brother and in Cooperstown with his close friend & niece. His generosity & kindness are best exemplified by his love for gardening and then canning delicious pickles, jam & salsa in order to make Christmas gift baskets with his “buddy” for friends & family and a “BIG MESS” in his wake for his beloved Meredith. He was passionate about politics and current events. David was a fervent reader and spent many enjoyable vacations on the ocean devouring his books with Meredith by his side and being surrounded by friends and family, serving them as “sanitation”.
