David worked as a postal clerk.

David's son Dennis was killed when he was pinned against a forklift. Dennis worked in the assembly department of an implement company. The accident occurred while workers, including Dennis, were assembling an air drill in the yard of the shop. They were apparently using a forklift to move an 8-by-10 foot frame for the air drill. The arms of the forklift were elevated when the right arm of the forklift came loose. Dennis tried to reattach the arm to the forklift, but the frame, which was by then balancing on one arm, teetered off toward Dennis and pinned him against the forklift. He died at the hospital that afternoon of severe head and chest injuries.
