David was an avid hunter and fisherman. He spent much of his spare time either hunting or fishing with his children. He loved nothing more than preparing for the upcoming season. The following narrative expresses David’s feelings about hunting and his family wishes to share it with you.
"And on the 9th day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, “Now that I have a caretaker, I need a protector, so God made a hunter. He needed someone who would have a steady hand, and a keen eye. A person who would be willing to trade long hours in the cold to provide for his family. They would have respect for the animals, the land, and would teach youngsters the same. So God made a hunter!"
In keeping with David’s wishes, memorials may be made to Hands of a Sportsman (http://www.handsofasportsman.org), a group dedicated to the mission of providing individuals with challenges, which may be physical, emotional, financial, or circumstantial, the opportunity to participate and enjoy the sport of hunting.
