Born on November 13, 1934, he was the son of the late David Leonard Reifsnider and Daisy Pearl Reifsnider, nee Hess. He was the loving husband to Vesta Elizabeth Reifsnider, nee Null, to whom he was married to 61 years.

David played the trombone in the Wm. F. Myers & Sons Band for 40 years. He enjoyed attending community concerts, shows and anything musical.
