David was a long-time tractor trailer driver for the US Post Office and retired about 1 year ago.  David was the kindest and most loving person.  He would do anything he could for anyone.  If you knew him, you were family.  David adored his wife, daughters and grandchildren.  He was always there to give a helping hand.  He loved to take all of the family to eat breakfast and dinner and anyone else that was with us.  David was a huge Miami Dolphins Fan.  He always had his Miami Jacket and hat with him.

David and his wife Mariana are both active members at Christ Fellowship Church in Boynton Beach.  David surrendered his life to Christ on his birthday a few years ago and has been a follower of Christ each day since.
