After service in the RCHA in WWII, he qualified as a chartered accountant. For several years, he practiced with his father before moving into industry. In 1957, he moved to Montreal and worked at Jas. A. Ogilvy's until he retired as President in 1985.

As an active volunteer, he was involved in many organizations including St. John's Church, Red Cross, Friends of Music and AbbeyField Houses. For his community service, David was recognized by the Town of Port Hope as a "Citizen of the Year" in 2006. David's love for his family was unconditional. He was much loved and respected by all who knew him. While he will be sadly missed, he will be celebrated as a loving husband, a wonderful father and grandfather, a loyal friend and a good man.
