Dave drove semi trucks for a living for many years he later changed over to diesel mechanics for 20 years until retirement . He loved to build fast cars and fast motorcycles and he loved to trade, hunt and shoot guns. All the kids loved whenever he came around to see what he had to trade. He was also known as a great storyteller and funny jokes.
He was also the fixer in the family. If anybody had a problem he could figure it out and get the job done. He may have had to think about it for a bit, but always found a solution.. Never found anything that he could not fix.
He loved his family very much and love to tease and play with the children he loved being around his grandchildren, they lit up his eyes and enjoyed every Tea party, every sword fight and every finger nail painting session.
After retirement, he loved going and participating in car shows around Utah received many Awards. It became a big family affair at each show with family and friends getting together and enjoying each other's company and he was very proud of the show cars that he built with the help of his family and his friends.
He was also known for his homemade pancakes. Not many entered our home and left without getting fresh pancakes from Papa Dave for breakfast. He was always there to listen and had good advice for many his stories and his jokes received all the attention when he was around . He will be greatly missed, he is loved by so many, young and old.
