It all started with a little boy who was annoyingly mechanical. He was
curious about how everything worked. According to his mother she was
forever finding a toaster or something taken apart. That's where the
annoyingly mechanical part comes in. When asked if her husband was
some kind of appliance repairman or car mechanic or something she
laughingly said " heck no! Why that man couldn't use a screwdriver to
save his life". "David was just born with a drive and a special ability
concerning anything mechanical". " Why I remember this one time I had
taken the kids and put them in the car to go to the five and dime and the
car wouldn't start. I tried and tried and the darn thing just wouldn't start. So
I went in the house to use the phone and while I was inside I heard the car
start. I couldn't believe my ears, not only because I couldn't start it but I
also had the keys in my hand. I just dropped the phone and ran out as
fast as I could to find the car stopped in the middle of the street. That little
...... had taken a quarter and stuck it up behind the ignition switch and
started the car in gear, and he was only 3 years old. Thank God he didn't
run anybody over. Now you see where all these gray hairs came from".
Fast forward some 20 years and David gets hired at a major plumbing
company in Orange County to repair and maintain their vehicles and
equipment. David excelled in this position and moved up in the company
being trained in all aspects of the plumbing business. Some years later in
1986 David ventured out on his own getting his Plumbing Contractors
