David Padulip Bacnat was born on November 21, 1967, in Batac, Ilocos Norte, Philippines, the youngest of his brothers, to his parents Placido Galacgac Bacnat and Dominga Padulip Bacnat. He graduated from Eureka High School in 1988. In 2006, he moved to the United States of America to reside in Hollister, California and accepted a position as an Agricultural Laborer at United Genetics Seeds Company, where he worked for almost 13 years.
David married Susan Los Banos Bacnat in February 2007 and the couple had 3 children together. He was a dedicated father and a loving husband. He felt content with the accomplishments that his children achieved during his lifetime. His children will remember him as a courageous, supportive, lenient father who encouraged them to pursue their goals and guide the family to success.
David was a hardworking, honest, and dedicated man who was deeply involved in helping our family and friends in various ways for the majority of his life. He enjoyed advising auto mechanical problems, enjoyed his bottle of bourbon whiskey with his friends, and circling in dots on his habitual California Lottery tickets in hopes of hitting the jackpot. In addition, he enjoyed wearing hats and kept a collection of his caps that were worn on different occasions. He was a faithful Catholic that attended Sunday mass at Saint Benedict Church. He always carried a thick, nicely trimmed mustache on his face. His family and friends will always remember him as a humorous, quiet, humble, honest person.
