His 35 yrs of Truck driving included Alice Specialty, Tetra and Acme where he retired due to health conditions in 2011. Often he'd say he didn't just like his job, he loved it. Both Clients and Employers knew that David made the impossible happen and grew to depend on his daring side. Along with trucking another passion was playing his guitar. Clients understood his dedication to God and waited till after service for their jobs. In his retired years he spend much time playing his guitars until his amputations on his finger. He improvised and continued to play at church to honor the Lord. When his nephews would visit all the guitars came out and Church was in the living room. David will be greatly missed by all who knew him and will be remembered for his passion for music and the Red Pole Truck zipping through Texas.
