He became involved with the first computer operations at the bank and through his hard work and dedication, eventu- ally rose to Vice President of Data Processing before retiring in 1989. After retirement David and Ade- line raised cattle and had a huge garden on their small ranch in Niederwald and spent time fishing on the Texas coast. He contin- ued deer hunting until he was 87. He served on the boards of the local church, farmers cooperative, and water supply company and was active In City of Niederwald civic activities. In addition to his lov- ing wife Adeline, David is survived by his wonderful daughters Vickie Schubert and Sandra Schubert Mercer and her husband Bob, his granddaughter Amy Mercer and her three children Anthony, Savannah, and Ethan.
