He attended San Juan Elementary school, then San Andreas High School before graduating from San Benito Highschool. He worked a couple of jobs really trying to make a life for himself. David was big on sports, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu even once spending a significant amount of time in Brazil to train. He absolutely loved family trips to Yosemite, day hiking trips to Fremont’s Peak in San Juan Bautista, and summer days at the beach. David had a huge heart and loved family nights with dinner and a movie.
