There was nothing he couldn’t do plumbing, electrical, lawn maintenance, he was a jack of all trades. He never stopped working; he was the fix it man for all the neighbours and friends, if you needed something fixed call David, one could consider him a work acholic, he enjoyed socializing and playing tricks with the people he spent time with while working.

On another note, he loved his sweets and all of his coffee breaks with family and friends. Oh no we can’t forget his KFC and his Chinese food. Menu was an important part of his life.
David’s pride and joy was his grand children he loved them all.
