A lifelong resident of Louisiana, David was born on November 19, 1967 in New Orleans. David had a passion for his kids, business, and creating lasting relationships. He found vast success following his father’s footsteps in the sewer and drain cleaning industry. David was a man that pushed life to the limit, facing every challenge head on, able to figure anything out on a whim. Known for always getting the job done. He was iconic for his unforgettable sense of humor, breaking anybody out of their shell. David loved to operate any type of machine or motorized vehicle. He had a passion for making things run, and running them full throttle. He raced street bikes, muscle cars, speed boats, and flew airplanes. He especially liked being on the water and fishing with his family. Friends and family can attest to his love for food. David’s eating was often compared to a shark attack. He especially loved to eat at “hole in the wall” restaurants and home cookin’ right out the pot was his favorite.
He was a great husband, father, son, pawpaw and friend. Many will forever mourn his loss. He has left the world with memories that will live on through his children and family. His legacy will live on forever. A Catholic Funeral Mass is scheduled for 10am September 18, 2021 at St. Rita Catholic Church, 7100 Jefferson Hwy. Harahan, LA. 70123 .
