Dave graduated from the University of Notre Dame, after which he began a career in accounting. He worked in corporate accounting positions until 1999 when he and his wife moved to Hilton Head Island, SC. They bought an Ace Hardware store on the Island, and Dave managed and worked in the business until it was sold, and he retired.

His interests included golf, collecting sports memorabilia, attending Notre Dame football games, and reading. Dave was a quiet, unassuming man and was well-liked because of his gentle nature.
