David was well known for his swimming pool plaster and masonry skills throughout the communities of Alamogordo, Sacramento, CA, Phoenix, Tucson, and FL. He also worked with Ruiz Roofing and General Hydronics for a short period of time in Alamogordo, NM. David had many things he enjoyed in his lifetime when he got the chance. He loved the Heavenly Father first, even though he drifted apart from time to time. David also loved being around his friends and family, and being the life of the party, dancing, singing, and laughing all while surrounded by the people he truly cared about. David also liked to enjoy kicking back at home or in his truck listening to his oldies. He would often do those things with his father, listening to the music, drinking his cold ones and smoking on his greenery. He also loved kicking it with his neighborhood buddies across the street. David had many other things he would enjoy like bowling, fishing, boonie busting, watching cartoons, playing with the dogs, and making tamales and cookies during the holidays with his loved ones. David is going to be dearly missed these coming holidays.
