David met his wife while they were both working for Montgomery Wards. Later in his life, David became a walking postal carrier with USPS.

At one time David supervised a skateboarding park in Saratoga Springs, NY. David was interested in nature, wild animals, sitting in the sun, feeding the wildlife in the backyard, reading, gardening, old black and white movies, and creepy crawly movies. He also loved to cook and take over the kitchen! He leaves to cherish his memory, his loving wife, Sharon (Daltilio) Cipkowski, whom he married on March 18, 1994, in Schenectady.
