Dave worked as a utility man for Mansfield Plumbing for 40 years. He graduated from Lucas High School in 1959. Throughout his high school years, he played basketball and baseball and played softball for 19 years. He also liked to play golf. As an avid sports fan, Dave loved to watch the Ohio State Buckeyes, Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Browns. Becoming a coach for little league gave him a chance to coach his boys for several years, who were his pride and joy. He later took over running the program and was proud of the fact he was able to help raise money to update and redo the ball fields. Dave loved the outdoors and being on the family farm.
