He dedicated his career to working at Arcelor-Mittal as a mechanic and as a safety specialist. While there, Dave earned recognition for his skills and innovation. Following his retirement, Dave was a consultant for ESW, Inc. In this capacity, he travelled to various steel mills sharing his expertise with both existing and start-up companies. Dave will also be remembered for the 20+ years he owned and operated D.C. Thorsten Hawaiian Shaved Ice Concession. His outgoing and gregarious personality won him a great following and many friends at area fairs and festivals.

Burial will be at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens along side his loving parents.

Dave loved travelling to tropical destinations, eating out at his favorite restaurants, and watching the Three Stooges. His greatest joy, however, was spending time with his grandchildren, taking them to the park, the bounce house and to Chicago. Dave's untimely passing will be deeply felt by many.
