David was a University Scholar and BIC student in the Honors College and the president of the Ball Room Dance Society. David grew up in Fergus Falls, Minnesota and at 12 years old began working at Central Lakes Cycle with his dad. He continued to work at the shop during the summer while he was in college. He will be forever missed. As his band director said, "David's positivity, love for life and everlasting smile will illuminate our hearts 'as long as stars shall shine.'"
