David (died 1989) was the husband of Tina McGee.
Sometime before 1989, both he and Tina became scientists at S.T.A.R. Labs. Around that time, the couple got married.
In 1989, David discovered a special enzyme that can stimulate the human's brain and enhance his senses. He and Tina were asked to test the enzyme on human subjects, but David refused. One night, because they didn't have much money left for the research, he decided to try the enzyme on himself. The experiment went wrong, which resulted in his death. His body was found by Tina the next morning.
Tina later was motivated to keep Barry Allen safe and to make sure his abilities weren't going to be the cause of his death due to David's passing.
