David grew up in the Oklahoma City area and retired in 2018 after 35 years of service as an Aircraft mechanic from Tinker Airforce Base where he made lifelong friends. David was an awesome family man, a loving and devoted husband and father. He married Linda in 1975 and together they built a wonderful life.
David loved life; he was loved by all. He truly was one of “The Good Ole Boys” he was an honest and hard-working man-his handshake was his word. He adored his family and enjoyed the outdoors; boating, hunting, fishing, riding his Harley, food, drinking beer, and he loved hanging out with his work buddies. “You motha’s ain’t gunna believe what I ate for dinner last night.”
A small memorial service was held in Florida, with family. Per David’s wishes, cremation was entrusted to Baldwin Brother’s Funeral Home.
The family requests all you Good Ole Boys and Girls Raise your Glass for one big toast to “Shad Daddy.”
Family requests donations be made to Alzheimer’s association or plant a tree in David’s honor.
