He graduated from Climbing Hill High School in 1946. and later drove school bus. David also worked in the store, often responsible for going to get the groceries and deliver them to the store shelves. On August 1, 1951, David was united in marriage to Janet Ruth Hummel at the First Baptist Church in Climbing Hill. This was just prior to David leaving to serve his country in the United States Army in Korea for a year. He was honorably discharged in 1952. David and Janet first lived on the family farm between Oto and Climbing Hill where they started farming. They had a farm sale in 1994 when they retired. They had already moved in to Climbing Hill in 1992, where they have lived until the present time.
