After graduation, David went to work in the tax planning department of PricewaterhouseCoopers. David advanced rapidly at PwC, but ultimately decided to move his family to New Mexico in 2005. Once settled in Roswell, David became the owner and broker of Century 21 Home Planning, where he made a career in real estate sales and management. David served our community in many respects, including serving on the United Way board, and on the Chamber of Commerce board. He had a very charitable heart.

David is survived by three children who loved him very much. Ava is 9 years old, Brady is 5 years old, and Mason is 3 years old. David is survived by his love, Maria Hinds.

David was the finest of friends. He and his special childhood friends, Ryan Wedel, Thad Reynolds and Kyle Reynolds spent hours together playing basketball, hiking and even venturing into business together. Davids college friend Mike Eickmann, pushed him to achieve high marks in college and go into law enforcement. After moving to New Mexico, David made many more dear friends, too numerous to mention here.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation to a charity of your choice in Davids name.
