When he’s not driving a forklift like a pro, he’s working on older cars of a different sort as a hobbyist mechanic. He and his wife, Linda, are also involved with the Irving Quilt Guild, which makes and donates quilts to the Scottish Rite Hospital and the Wounded Warriors organization. The Irving division of the Guild donates approximately 350 quilts a year.
David and Linda have a daughter, Robin, and a son, David II. Combined, they have 6 Granddaughters: Jordan, Kelly, Madison, Colby, Josephine & Elizabeth & 1 grandson: Joey ranging in age from 18 to 26 years.
With additions to his family: daughter in law: Dee, son in law: Bill, and 2 add’l grandsons: Ben Strickfaden & Ben Dockery, married to Jordan & Madison.
Anyone who has seen David expertly navigate the warehouse with a giant roll of carpet on the prongs of his forklift can heartily attest to his claim, “If it can be done, the old man can still get it!”
