He ran "The Adventures in Space" for over 20 years.

David was an avid sports fan and enjoyed following the local professional teams. He especially liked hockey, was a long time coach for The South Shore Braves. He loved going to the movies and traveling. More than anything he enjoyed spending time with his family.
