David and Dorothy would live on 57th street in Manhattan before moving to New Rochelle in 1986. David was a self made man, working many different careers. From the acting and modeling business, to the bar business and later owning a jewelry store in Queens, David was a man of many talents. Although he worked many jobs, his true passion was acting.

David loved everything nautical. He loved to spend time at the ocean or sit at the beach. If he wasn't traveling or going to the theatre with his wife you could catch him rooting for the Yankees or the NY Giants. He travelled the world and especially loved Ireland and Italy.
