David was born June 12, 1945 in Albany, Calif. to Glenn and Barbara Nystrom Ostrander. The family moved to Live Oak, Calif. where David attended local schools, graduating with the class of 1963. David attended Chico State College and went to work for PG&E. Shortly after starting to work at PG&E he was drafted and served with the US Army in Vietnam from 1966 to 1968, returning to continue his employment with PG&E where he worked for 42 years before retiring from their Hydro Electric division. Most of his time was spent in the Feather River Canyon and DeSabla areas where he considered PG&E one big family. A member of NRA, David loved the outdoors, enjoyed hunting, loading his own ammunition as well as working around his home and in his garden. “David had a great sense of humor and enjoyed telling/swapping jokes and playing pranks on family and friends.”
