He worked at Armco Steel until he began teaching at Stanley Elementary School in Garden Grove, California where he taught 6th grade for 35 years in the same classroom.
David's faith in and personal relationship with Jesus Christ caused him to serve in leadership and music positions at First Baptist Church, Spokane, Washington; Central Christian Church, Spokane, Washington and Calvary Baptist Church in Whittier, California. After retirement, David and Barbara relocated to Cottonwood, Arizona in 2000 and were members and choir members of Verde Community Church.
