He is also survived by his sisters Nancy Frain and Jane Frain both of Ephrata, PA and predeceased by his siblings Emma, Conrad, Janet, Albert, Evelyn, Lorraine, Herman, and Jack. He leaves behind many loving nieces and nephews.

David was an avid golfer so much so that he golfed five days a week – come rain or shine – whenever the course was open. He also loved to ski and took many trips with his family, including nieces Faith Steigelman and Judy Stryjewski.

Due to restrictions, services will be held privately.
