He specialized in the Failure Analysis field and RFID Smart card products, and creating procedures for preventive measures at five semiconductor companies. During his working career, he always knew where he was going to work for next. He even took time off for several months between companies to remember that life wasn’t all about work.

Over the years, David charted & mapped Lake Pueblo. Being a detailed person, let’s just say he wrote an in-depth guide. He also went on an annual fishing trip to Blue Mesa with his friends.

He was a member of IEEE, NRA, Pueblo West Sportsman Association as well as a multitude of other organizations. He also held leadership roles in Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts of America for over a decade. After retiring, David connected with friends from the past. He enjoyed working on planes, boats, & automobiles. He especially looked forward to his Sestronix meetings.
