David was born to David W. and Mary Huerzler Dunlap Jan. 31, 1914, in Culdesac. He graduated from Culdesac High School in 1932 and then attended Lewiston Normal School before going to work in the Blister Rust Camp in Orofino.
Dave was married in the early '50s to Virginia Zeigler Kiebert. Their marriage ended in divorce in 1970.
