David and his wife, Lynn, moved to Montrose in April of 2015. They both love Montrose and the people that make the city the special place it is. Lynn is a native of Colorado and spent her formative years in Grand Junction; David has lived in Colorado since 1984.
David grew up as a “Military Brat”. Moving from Base to Base every three years has given him the experience of meeting new people and the appreciation of different cultures. He learned to integrate within those cultures and to appreciate the diversity they offer. David also served in the United States Air Force for three and half years.
Although David had other jobs after leaving the USAF he spent most of his adult life working for AT&T. He retired after nearly thirty-four years’ service with them. During his AT&T career he had a variety of technical support and managerial positions. David’s managerial experience provides him the skills necessary to make sound decisions across multiple disciplines, i.e., budget, organizational structure and logistics.
While at AT&T David earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Management from the University of Phoenix. He also earned a Master of Telecommunications Degree from the University of Denver.
David has supported former communities through church-sponsored charitable events. He and his wife have helped with delivering holiday meals while in Montrose.
David enjoys playing golf, reading and staying healthy by working out at one of the local gyms.
