Character Bio

David Fisher photo
David James Fisher (1969–2044), played by Michael C. Hall, is the middle child (four years younger than Nate) who was co-operator of Fisher & Sons Funeral Home (later Fisher & Diaz). David is gay and is at first in the closet about his sexuality. Prior to the start of the series, David was confused about his sexuality after being engaged briefly to a woman named Jennifer Mason. David met Keith Charles, a police officer, at a church social function and the two began dating. David joined the family business in 1989 at the age of 20 and was very jealous of his brother Nate who left home years prior.

After his father's death and Nate's return, David has a visible resentment against Nate, but the tension soon dissolves when Nate wants to help with the family funeral business. At the same time, David is offered his father's old position as deacon at their church. In addition to not coming out to his family and becoming deacon at a local church that frowns upon homosexuality, Keith breaks up with David. David then dates a younger man named Kurt, a dance instructor who loves to use drugs and go to dance clubs. The relationship ends briefly after David catches him making out with another man. After arranging a funeral for a young gay man who was brutally murdered for his sexual orientation, David comes out to his family and resigns from his post as deacon. David then reconciles with Keith whom he begins dating months later. It is not long after that the two are in couples counseling for their issues. Slowly they work out their differences but become once again separated when David suffers a traumatizing experience with a carjacker. The experience leaves David shocked and vulnerable. The only people to whom he entirely opens up about the ordeal are Keith and his sister, Claire. David finally decides that he wants to have children with Keith and they adopt two abandoned children: Anthony and Durrell.

David marries Keith around 2009 and they remain together until the latter's death in 2029. David dies in 2044 at a family outing.
