During his youth the family moved to Seminole, Oklahoma where he grew up to be a fine man. The deaths of both his parents prompted David to begin work at a young age, primarily in the oil fields.
As work became scarce in his hometown, he moved his family to the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. Most recently he worked for Exterran Corporation as a welder/burner and safety coordinator.
