He was a loving husband, an amazing father, and loyal best friend. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Lisa Keffer of Monrovia, MD. They were inseparable, two peas in a pod, best friends for life, she was there holding his hand until his last breath. His last gaze was on her and his next was on the Lord.

Also, his cousin Allan Keffer who he loved like a brother. A very special friend Stanley Gibson. He also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews.
David was part of the Local 602. If he was not welding or doing anything work related, you could find him talking to anyone about anything and everything. When talking to him, he made you feel like you’ve known him for years even if you met him five minutes ago. But mostly he loved talking about the Lord and sharing the word with everyone. Due to his passion about the Lord, he became an ordained minister. Any chance he got he would preach, even when cooking bacon.
