Dave was a 1980 graduate of Parma High.  He then attended Cleveland State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in both Physics and Electrical Engineering.  Dave was a Senior Design Engineer at Rockwell Automation where he was employed for over 20 years.

Dave enjoyed football and home improvement.  He was a Browns season ticket holder and loved playing in multiple fantasy football leagues.  In addition to working on his latest home improvement project, Dave could always be seen cheering on his daughter at all of her swim meets and chanting at his sons’ football games.  Dave loved becoming a grandpa, and could often be found rolling on the carpet or reading books from his chair.
