David attended Broadmoor School, was a resident of Deepwood for 25 years and was a member of the Slovenian Lodge SNPJ #158. An avid Cleveland Browns and OSU fan, David’s love of sports carried over into the Special Olympics, where he won both gold and silver medals in swimming and track. He was also an excellent swimmer and won his first gold medal when he was just seven years old. When he wasn’t bowling or watching Superman movies, David delighted people with his sense of humor, loving disposition and a great smile that melted everyone’s heart.
