David’s parents met at Oregon State and are still aghast that David grew up to be a die hard Duck fan. David lives in Silverton and spends his free time with his wife, Melissa, and three children, Henry, Juliet and Arthur. David is pleased to note that even at an early age Henry looks forward to becoming a Duck linebacker.
