After leaving the police department, he volunteered for the Rocky Mountain Brain Injury Center and taught a police safety course. He leaves behind a daughter, Jennifer Wedeking, 32, of Switzerland, a brother, Duane (Cindy) Roberts of Highlands Ranch, and two sisters, Lynne (Harold) Hoffman of Thornton, and Donette (Joe) Homra of Arvada. Per his wishes, there will be no public memorial. In lieu of flowers, David requested friends send donations to Canine Companions for Independence, P.O. Box 446, Santa Rosa, Calif., 95402
