Interment was Thursday April 14, 2022 at Mt. View Cemetery in Deming.
David was born December 8, 1940 in Clifton, Arizona to Hubert Lee and Nancy Jane (Dyer) Hand. David was a surveyor in the construction industry which took him to work in several areas here in the Southwest. He lived in Tucson, Arizona for some time and later returned to Deming in 1978 where he made his home until 1993 when he moved to Las Cruces. At the time of his retirement he was working with Burns Construction Company. He is especially remembered as being an avid fan of the Boston Celtics and the New York Yankees. If they were playing, nothing would get in his way for him to watch the game.
