David developed a love for politics early in life. When in elementary school, he learned
that some people were "takers" and some were "producers". That awareness shaped
his life orientation. It was at this point in his life that Dave knew that to have a real
impact on people's lives, one would need to have God in their life.
He won the Junior High School Monitor Office as being a "Leader, not a Lover" when
the incumbent fell to the charges of his spending too much time with his girlfriend. Dave
was then in charge of all the hall monitors at Fresno's Hamilton Junior High School.
At Fresno High School Dave quickly got himself out of gym class, which he always
viewed as being a Fascist institution, by arranging various student government
meetings during that class period. He was chief justice of the student court and junior
class president, among other functionary positions. He proudly represented the stat of
Illinois and debated the issues of the day in the Fresno High School Senate, the oldest,
continuous high school club in the nation.
Dave was elected to the first Fresno City Youth Commission and was appointed by
then-Mayor, the late Ted C. Wills, to the Fresno Redevelopment Agency.
During his school years, he was not without flaws. His sense of adventure was
occasionally unencumbered by prudence or common sense.

The above was written by David in an act of love for his wife and he stopped at this
point. His proud and loving family want you to know that Dave served as a Session
Member and Chairman of Business, Financial and Stewardship Committee at Bethany
Presbyterian Church. He was the former Assistant Treasurer, Treasurer and Grants
Administrator at Meals on Wheels, Colonial Heights, Former Treasurer at Kingsport
Tomorrow, Inc. He retired from County of Kern as the Resource Management Agency
Director. He was the former Executive Vice President of the Building Industry Assn. of
Kern County, the Former Asst. Executive Officer at the Building Industry Assn. of the
San Joaquin Valley, Former Congressional Intern at the United states House of
Representatives. He studied Campaign finance, Policy Development at Sacramento
State, and Political Science, American History and Foreign Policy at California State
University, Fresno. He was also elected at the College's Student Body President. He
was a proud brother of the Fresno State Sigma Chi.
David loved God with his whole body, mind and soul. That love was demonstrated by
his giving the gift of life as an organ and tissue donor, just as Jesus Christ gave him
eternal life. Although we miss him greatly, we are comforted in knowing Dave is at
peace in his Savior's arms, and reunited with family and friends that have gone before
