David was born on October 16, 1955, in Big Spring, TX and passed away on December 4, 2017.
David graduated from Bossier High School in 1974. He was fiercely loyal, strong and defended his family and friends the same way he defended his teammates as an Offensive Tackle for the Bossier Bearkats. David was highly intelligent and analytical, which made getting his B.S. in Computer Science from Louisiana Tech, in 1978, a perfect fit for him.
His first job was for the City of Bossier as it’s Manager of the Water Billing department. He left that job to become the Senior Systems Analyst for Kast Metals. In 1982 he started a consulting business, where he designed, implemented and ran a number of successful computer systems for various businesses. David was a very kind and generous person who would do anything within his abilities for his friends and family. David loved watching football. He especially loved watching his nephew Mark play for the Byrd Yellow Jackets, and Washington University in St Louis Bears. David was also a licensed private pilot and loved flying planes.
