David was born in Augusta, Georgia to Arthur Wendell and Pauline Walthell Putnam on October 8, 1960.

On the night David met Karole Dennis, he declared that she would marry him one day. His wish came true on April 4, 1991 on the rooftop of the Partridge Inn before a picturesque sunset with many friends and family.
