He was a golfer, David sometimes enjoyed the sport, depending on the direction of the "wind." David loved to read about current and prospective technology and science. A talented tinker, David mysteriously always had the needed tool for a job on his person. Most of all David simply enjoyed the times he shared with family and friends.
