David graduated from Shead High School in Eastport, Class of 1995.  At a young age he knew he wanted to go into law enforcement and was an Explorer with the Eastport Police Department.  David went to Southern Maine Community College where he earned an associate degree in criminal justice.  While in college, David was active with the Big Brother program.  He returned to Washington County and started his career with the Pleasant Point Police Department.  Throughout his law enforcement career, David was employed with police departments for Pleasant Point, Machias, Calais, Indian Township, and most recently Baileyville.  He expanded his training by working as a School Resource Officer, Bike Officer, Drug Recognition Expert, Field Training Officer, and a MARC Instructor.  David also was an Adjunct Professor for Washington County Community College and was trained for the D.A.R.E. program which he provided for the Calais Elementary School. 

David loved his Lord and Savior and was a Deacon with the Cornerstone Baptist Church in Eastport.  He had a passion for physical fitness and weightlifting.  David went to many weightlifting meets in Las Vegas and Reno, NV, holding several state records and two international records.  Above everything, David loved spending time with his family and being the best “grampie Dave”.
