David resides in Bedford, Texas where he devotes much of his free time to serving the community and volunteerism-a principle in which he strongly believes. Noted theologian, John Wesley once said,
“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
This is a guiding principle for David and because of his substantial community involvement; he has received numerous awards and recognitions including the prestigious Clyde Mooney award from the HEB Chamber of Commerce as well as the Community Service and Business of the Year awards.
David has been a member of the HEB Rotary as well as a member of Hurst Lodge#1387
