David was born in St. Brendan Parish, Dorchester, and attended St. Gregorys elementary school. He graduated from Blue Hill Regional High School, Canton, where he received a degree in building construction. David was a standout, all-scholastic soccer goalie. He enjoyed playing all sports but soccer and baseball were his favorites, he could hit a baseball a country mile. He was a huge Patriots fan and always wagered heavily on them. In the past year, he became a proud member of Local 67 Carpenters Union as an apprentice carpenter. David received his greatest apprenticeship training in building from his uncles John and Padraig Tully. He enjoyed spending time with his friends and family and was especially proud of his 4-year-old son, Caiden. He was a handsome, charismatic, personable young man with a bright future and his smile, wit, and humor will be sorely missed by all his family and his many friends.
