David was an avid fan of the Philadelphia Sports Teams.  He enjoyed playing golf with his dad, walking the family dog, listening to music and playing the guitar and introducing the sport of Lacrosse to his son, but he truly cherished the time he spent with his wife and their two children Lillyanna and Oliver.  David will be greatly missed, but eternally loved and remembered by everyone who had the pleasure to have been in his life and loved by him.
