The son of a Marine Corps lifer, Dave was born at Camp Pendleton Marine Base near Oceanside, CA. His parents started buying and selling tools, antique and collectibles - anything of value, really - at auctions, estate sales and garage sales to supplement his father's military income upon returning from Vietnam in 1969. When his father retired in 1979, Dave and his parents had been buying and selling for 10 years. At 14 years of age, Dave was attending auctions himself, buying tools and machinery to sell to the shops that supported the two nearby military bases in Orange County, CA.
