Nothing is known about David's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
About a year into the apocalypse, David was part of a group of survivors residing in Decatur, Georgia.
Sometime after the arrival of the Woodbury refugees to the prison, David and his group were recruited to join the community.
David is in the cell with Karen while ensuring the children's safety from the oncoming walkers.
Afterwards, it's revealed David is suffering from the same flu-like symptoms as Karen. This causes the council to move both David and Karen over to a separate cell block as a precaution against them infecting any other prison survivors with the virus.
Later that day when Tyreese brings flowers for Karen, he finds David burned alongside her in a small courtyard.
David's corpse remains in the courtyard as Rick discovers him and Karen's charred bodies after Tyreese informed him of the situation.
In a flashback, David's body is burned alongside Karen's by Carol as she attempts to stop the spread of the flu.
