He was born on May 24, 1950, in LaPorte, Ind., to Durwood and Eunice McDonald.

Dave met his future wife Tracy Hoenke at Purdue University. They were married on July 14, 1973, in Chesterton, Ind.

Dave had two sons Caleb McDonald of Chicago and Zachary McDonald of Chesterton.

He loved cars and spent many hours roaming salvage yards looking for treasures. In the winter months he enjoyed building model cars and electric trains. On summer days you could find Dave on his riding lawnmower, he destroyed several wooden canes in the process.

Dave requested that he be cremated with no memorial services.
