David was born the son of Gordon and Sharon (Noble) Pickering on Monday, May 17, 1971, and he graduated from Midlakes high school in 1990. He worked at Farnsworth Chevrolet for over 15 years and Pudgies Pizza for 15 years; he also worked at McLouth Chevrolet for several years.

David was a great family man and a loving father to three. He met Amanda Stenquist in 1994 and had a relationship that lasted almost twelve years. While they were not together, they still sustained a loving relationship while co-parenting their children. David was a social, active man who was always on the go. He enjoyed spending time with friends and family. He enjoyed being in nature, taking walks and bike rides through the woods, and most could find him building or rebuilding any vehicle. He was great at creating something out of recycled items. His family and friends will never forget him as a helpful, stubborn man. David will be dearly missed.

David will be remembered by his children Joshua Pickering, Maddison Pickering; and Colin Pickering; mother of his children, Amanda Stenquist; sister, Karen (Scott) Elling; his mother, Sharon Pickering; one nephew and two nieces.

David was predeceased by his father, Gordon Pickering in 2016.
