David is a Sibley High School graduate, where he was lovingly known as "Big Cheech." David was a constant joyful presence. He was loving and engaging and never missed an opportunity to approach anyone, thrust out his hand and say hello. David's greatest passion was going fast whether on a boat, jetski, snowmobile, roller coaster or in a sports car with the top down. His lifelong example of optimistic determination and love will forever be missed in our lives. The family wishes to thank the countless loving caregivers that have touched David throughout his life.
