David and his family moved to Denver, CO in 1957 for his dad’s, Roger, career.  David graduation from high school at Arapahoe High School in 1973 and moved to Fort Collins, CO to attend Colorado State University.  David had 3 degrees.  The first was in Foresty and Bio-statics.  His first job out of college was in Moscow, Idaho, where he found the beauty of Moscow, and was quickly adopted by the Stage family who keep us close to their heart.

David’s second degree was in computer science where he moved back to Fort Collins to work for HP and Intel.  After 18 years of service with HP/Intel, David wanted to give back to the world.  He then went to school for a 3rd time earning his Physician Assistant’s degree. 

He PA degree took us to Alamosa, CO and then to Yuma CO.  David enjoyed his work in all these fields and the wonderful friends and family he met along the way.

David also loved sports often trying to out do the young man, all varieties of music and singing, and theater. For those of you who knew David his wonderful spirit and out going crazy personality, theater was an excellent place for him to shine.

I am not sure what else David could have accomplished in his life. He was so full and enjoyed every minute of it.
