Dave graduated from Lorain Catholic High School in 1984. He worked as an assembler at the Lorain Ford Assembly Plant and the Avon Lake Truck Plant for almost 20 years, and was known on his shift as “Super Dave”.
He was a member of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Lorain, the former St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Lorain and the St. Stanislaus Holy Name Society.
Dave was a lifelong super modified racing fan and his passion was being with his sons as they raced in events. He was president of the Northwest Ohio Quarter Midget Racing Association, the Ft. Wayne Rumble Series Quarter Midget Director and a member of the Midwest Super Modified Association.
Dave cut grass for family and friends and enjoyed lending a hand to someone who needed help with something.

Lesiecki, a student at the University of Toledo and Jonathon Lesiecki, at home; mother, Mary Lou Lesiecki (nee Mitro) of Lorain; brothers, Richard (Karen) Lesiecki of Rocky River and Thomas (Jane) Lesiecki of Amherst Township; and many nieces and nephews.
