David was a member of Faith Church in Dyer. He retired from LTV Steel, proud of his service there. David was a veteran of the U.S. Army. He used his training in the Army as an electrical repairman to make a career at LTV, enabling him to fix just about anything broken. He was an avid fisherman and hunter. David especially liked attending his grandchildren’s sporting events and was an enthusiastic fan of Lake Central High School sports. David never turned down a request to help anyone and will be sorely missed.
