He had 3 brothers and 1 sister: Art, Allen , Tom, and Sandra. David grew up farming all kinds of crops and continued the traditions that his family and extended family had come to know as what life was. Once he moved to Richmond, he cultivated his fabrication ideas and focused his attention on cattle ranching. Cattle, that’s what was important to him. He didn’t experience things as we do today, taking joy in hunting, fishing, or traveling. He did what he loved: cattle and accumulating lots of hay for these cattle.

David was the owner of Vasbinder Style Pits in Richmond, TX, offering firewood sales as well as custom fabricated BBQ pits. He was a hardworking cattle rancher and a longtime supporter of the Fort Bend County Fair Youth Livestock Show & Auction.

Survivors include his children, Lori Schindler; Lisa Barnes and husband, Scott; Rafael Ruiz Mejia, although not a blood brother, he was David’s best friend, right-hand-man, and helper with all things. Lori and Lisa do, and will continue to, call him Brother; grandchildren, Alex Jacks; Britney Schindler; Joseph Schindler; and Morgan Clewell and husband, Logan; great grandchildren, Delainee; Delilah; Greenlee; and Cooper.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lorie Niemann Vasbinder and James H. Vasbinder; and by his brother, Arthur (Art) D. Vasbinder.
