David was a talented handyman, skilled welder, and dedicated worker. With over 42 years of welding experience, he always extended his talents to teach and make numerous home repairs, projects and gifts for family and friends. He loved to teach people how to weld and talk about his job. He was proud of his achievements and accomplishments over the years. He was a Fitter Supervisor at Signal Metal Industries, Inc and enjoyed going to work. He enjoyed the daily camaraderie with his managers and co-workers. David's biggest passions were watching and rooting for his beloved NY Giants, working on his '88 blue Chevy pickup truck and catching bass and catfish at his favorite fishing holes. He loved his truck, and all the neighborhoods could hear him coming down the street. He loved to fish quite often with his kids, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. One of his favorite fishing holes was Gussie Field Park in Farmers Branch. He would often go there to relax. He would take anyone that wanted to go, he never hesitated to do the things he loved.
David never met a stranger that he couldn't connect with on a personal level and was willing to always put others before himself. Everyone he met would eventually become a friend. His outgoing personality and dimples would often draw people to him. He had such a unique laugh that was contagious and beautiful. He loved chocolate, coffee, his cat, Diamond, and his dogs, Chiquita, and Max. His love of animals and caring nature was evident in the way he looked after his family, his friends, and any of God's creatures except for the squirrels in his pecan trees.
The pallbearers will be David Alardin Jr., Rudy Perez, Christopher Perez, Marcos Martinez, Roman Martinez, Arthur Hernandez Alardin Jr., Domingo Reyes, and Joe Bouza.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for everyone involved in his daily care.
Over the last few weeks, David had an incredible team of doctors, nursing staff and technicians caring for him at Methodist Dallas Medical Center. He connected on a personal level with his medical and nursing staff, and he had an incredible team of nurses. Often his nurses would stop by and check on him when they were working in other parts of the hospital. Just to check in. This extension of care is appreciated by his entire family.
