He grew up in Wall Lake, IA, where he attended grade school and graduated from Wall Lake High School with the class of 1986. After graduation, David continued his education at WITCC and received his Rental Technology degree.
On September 16, 1989, David was united in marriage to Janet Dunkin in Lake View, IA. They first made their home in Greensboro, North Carolina, in 1987, and then moved to Madison, Wisconsin, in 1991. While in Wisconsin, David was employed by Action Rental, and later managed Fans & Monograms and Racing Fans retail store in Madison. He was employed by Viking Hardware in Mount Horeb, and later helped with the building of a new hardware store in New Glarus, which he managed for several years. In 2017, David and Janet moved back home to Iowa to be near family. He was employed by Storm Lake Ace Hardware, and most recently was selling auto parts at Ida Grove Napa.
Although he lived in Wisconsin, David was a lifelong Minnesota Vikings and Iowa Hawkeyes fan. He was also an avid fan of NASCAR, drag racing, and dirt track racing. For many years, he loved helping the DeSelle Racing team race midgets on the dirt every Sunday night in the summer, at Angell Park Speedway in Sun Prairie.
