David was born David Fischl to William "Moses" Fischl and Jenna Flora Gitskey on November 22, 1926, in New York City. He was the fifth of six children, and grew up in the Bronx.
When David was sixteen years old the family moved to Oregon where there was work to be had in the shipyards aiding the war effort. It was here, at the age of nineteen, that he met and married June Elizabeth Carpenter on May 23, 1945 in Portland, Oregon. From this union he fathered one daughter, Cheryl Lee Fischl. They seperated shortly after the birth of the baby, and mother and child returned to the mother's home state of Oklahoma. They divorced September 6, 1947.
He enlisted in the US Army in 1945, toward the end of WWII.
David was married four more times. First, very briefly, to a lady named Blanche, last name unknown. Next was Marion Mather, at which time he changed his last name to hers. This was a business related decision. They both started working at Miracle Ear at the same time and they operated a hearing aide business together. His fourth wife was Elaine Segret Moore. During their marriage they operated a hospital supply and hearing aid business together. His fifth wife's name is unknown, but it is understood that it was brief, also ending in divorce. None of these unions produced more children.
The last twenty two years were spent with his life partner, Evelyn Gomez, of the home at the time of his death. They spent many happy hours at one of their favorite pastimes, dancing. He also liked to fish and hunt.
David was preceded in death by his parents: William and Flora Fischl; three brothers: Benjamin Frederick, Seymore and Harold; and one sister, Anna Lillian Renfrow. Two great-grandchildren also preceded him: Kenndall Don Moore and Alexis Rose Moore. He leaves behind his life partner, Evelyn Gomez of the home; daughter Cheryl Moore of Tulsa, Oklahoma; two grandchildren; Karla Dawn Gifford of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and James Don Moore of Claremore, Oklahoma; eight great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren with a third due in 2013.
