David loved spending time with his wife and children. He had a amazing sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hank and Mary Wuest.

David is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; sons, Christopher and Daniel; sister, Catherine (Patrick) Lyons; niece, Clare Lyons; Elaine Pratt; birth mom; his favorite cat, Black Kitty and many other family and friends.
