David graduated from LaSalle University, Philadelphia. He served in the United States Marine Corps and in 1978, formed Eastern America Transport & Warehousing. Eastern America grew over the years to include customs bonded warehousing, truckload services and mail consolidation. In 2000, Eastern America became a founding company of Roadlink USA where David sat on the board until his retirement. David was known nationally as one of the most influential and knowledgeable trucking and drayage professionals in the nation. He received many awards and recognition for his accomplishments over the years.

David had a passion for children and served on several charities boards dedicated to handicapped children. He was honored many times by the Variety Club and Shriners Hospital for his generous contributions. He was also a supporter of Little Sisters of the Poor and Salvation Army.

David enjoyed his retirement in Florida playing golf, gathering with friends, and spending time with his grandchildren. He was always readily available to his children and grandchildren to share his business knowledge, providing advice and support. He will be missed by all.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be made to The Salvation Army, Shriners Hospital, or The Little Sisters of the Poor.
