David was the eternal family man with a heart of gold that he shared with all he knew. He welcomed everyone as his family with open arms and enjoyed time spent with friends. David was quite the comedian. He was always seen with a smile on his face and a joke up his sleeve. He put everyone else’s happiness before his own. If ever you needed help, Dave was the man to call night or day, rain or shine.
David worked in the used oil industry for thirty-eight years. Through his work, he gathered an endless amount of customers that he thought more of as friends. He would often talk about the same people he has worked with and been friends with for decades. He drove a truck all over the Denver Metro area and collected used oil. He was the human Google Maps. He knew by memory every thoroughfare and alley in Denver.

He is survived by his brother Edward Rothbauer; sister Karen Spruce; brother Roger Rothbauer; daughter Amy Ellis; son Craig Rothbauer; and daughter Sandra Rothbauer; Kathleen Beckwith; Aspen Beckwith; Autumn Herndon; Cory Beckwith; and Adam Beckwith.
