He is survived by his devoted wife for 39 years, Leslie (nee Wilinski) and his cherished daughter, Nicole M. and her husband, Greg Porco. He was blessed with the birth of his grandson, Colin David in 2018 who affectionately called him “Poppi.” He leaves his mother-in law, Penny Mroz, siblings: Diane (William) Micken, Michael (Barbara) Harshaw and John “Brad” (Stacie) Harshaw, Sister-in-law Lori (Mark) Hansen and many nieces, nephews and dear, dear friends.

Born in Hawaii, David ‘s family moved to Haddon Heights when he was a child. David went on to graduate from Haddon Heights High School in 1972 where he was a member of the wrestling team and Senior Class President. After graduating Rutgers University early work experiences included: road construction projects on 295, flight service with Braniff Intl.

David was a past President of the Haddon Heights Rotary and a member more than 20 years. He was also a longtime member of Tavistock Country Club, where David enjoyed golf occasionally and an active social life. A man with many interests, he enjoyed travel, cocktails, Frank Sinatra, his latest car, the Buick, fine dining service, a crisp monogrammed shirt, his sweet dog, Frankie, his good friends and devoted family, especially the newest light in his life, Colin. He had his own style of dancing, loved to "stir the pot” with conversations about pensions and Trump and often offered important advice about maintaining eye contact and "living life large."
