He is remembered by many as a motorcycle enthusiast, avid music lover, and by is own proclamations a fixer of anything. He had a collection of parts for everything. He was a loving brother that was always kind growing up and was always willing to teach you everything he knew, from chess, to cars, to grilling all with that big smile on his face and his big dimples showing. He welcomed all and loved spending time with his family and friends.
He loved his family. He would talk for hours with the boys related to cars, four wheeling with the family, and sit with the girls to watch The Voice. He was there to offer advice and perspective, sometimes when you didn’t want to hear it and many times, he would offer it twice. He is known for his stubbornness, but always that he loved deeply. As a husband, he cherished the time to reconnect and take his wife out on his motorcycle. It was always then you would see that big smile that was an instant reminder of the love he had for all that knew him.
He is survived by Venita Pelegrin, children Christian (Amanda), Anastassia, Brennen, and Abrielle. Grandchildren Matthew, Sawyer, and Brinley. He had many brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews.
David proceeded in death by his father and his grandparents.
