David enjoyed singing, golfing, playing bridge, reading, collecting stamps, gardening, and travelling. He sang with the International Chorale out of Dunedin Florida and would often break into song spontaneously, alone, or with his wife Kathleen. The two of them could easily be encouraged to sing an Abba tune for any occasion.
