David graduated from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, in 1981, with a degree in mathematics. He later attended and graduated from Oregon State University with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agriculture. This led to a career in horticulture, finally working as a retail fertilizer salesman in Portland, Oregon. However, his passion was always metaphysics!

He was a very friendly, kind and generous individual and lived a remarkable life. He touched all who knew him.
