Dave was born May 29, 1952, in Marion, IA to Donald and Betty (Keeler) Guthrie. He graduated from Van Meter High School, Van Meter, IA in 1970. He was a US Navy veteran, serving four years during the Vietnam War.

Dave started in the garage door industry in 1968 working for Adams Door in Iowa. In 1995, the family moved to the Kansas City area and he became owner of Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City.

Dave enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time at the lake with his family. He was very funny, a great storyteller and a mentor to so many people through the years. His greatest joy was being a proud Papa to his four grandkids.
