David was a happy and loving person, who loved above all things his family and the Dallas Cowboys. His pride and joy were his children, his wife and in his later years, his grandchildren. David had a free spirit, and you never knew what he would get up to next, whether he was going fishing, for a drive through the countryside or dancing to the music. No matter what he was doing he did, he did it with a smile. David will be dearly missed by all those who knew him.
He is preceded in passing by his parents Cristano and Delia and by one son.
Left to treasure his memory are his wife of over 24 years Rosabel Castillo, children Jason Vela, Lindsay Vela and Jaime Garcia. Sisters Lily Irion, Linda Vela, and Becky Puente. He is also survived by 9 grandchildren and too many friends to count.
