After many trips, he decided to join the Disney Vacation Club and spent many happy vacations with his family there. He later discovered Hilton Head Island and that became a favorite, as well. David loved animals and adored his dog, Jack and his cat, Brady, as well as his beloved St. Bernard, Bella. His love for them knew no bounds.
