David was a very proud U.S. Navy Veteran, (Vietnam Era). He served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Lawrence DDG4 and was a Damage Controlman 3rd class. He participated in the Cuban Missile Crisis and visited many European countries. He was the recipient of the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal and earned many other medals which are proudly residing in a glass case on our wall. He was a great supporter and member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, Boys Town and the NRA.
For 30 years, he worked for Polaroid Camera Division (Norwood and Cambridge) and Film Division (Waltham). He was a Quality Supervisor and Quality Engineering Technical Specialist. He retired in 1995 and was a member of the Polaroid Retirees Association.
He enjoyed carving and made beautiful keepsakes for his family and friends, fishing, boating, growing the best flowers, fruits and vegetables especially tomatoes, watching television, and going to the Casino. He was a great conversationalist and lover of American Indian history.
Along with his Chihuahuas, Rosalena and Blue, he will be missed by Boots, his faithful Jack Russell terrier who was always by his side watching David and sticking to him like Velcro.
