As a company, we’ve seen David grow in his career within our company but also as a man. In 2019 we watched as Gary Abrojena Sr. (ETC Founder/ President) officiated David’s marriage to Kelsey Purser. It was a great honor for our family to lay witness to this spectacular day. In 2017 David and Kelsey purchased their first home together.
