David L. Hetrick, CPA
“My clients trust that I stand behind my word and serve as their advisor by making appropriate recommendations. They count on me to know and understand their business, their industry, and important tax laws. I take time to ensure they understand the big picture and explain important information that affects them directly.”

David has been with Lewis, Hooper & Dick, LLC since 1985. As a member, he provides specialized tax planning, compliance, and consulting services to businesses and individuals. Though he works with a variety of clients, David concentrates his practice on organizations in the agriculture, grain, and livestock industries.

With over 40 years of public accounting experience, David is recognized and respected as an authority on both tax and general accounting principles. Throughout his career, he has assisted family-owned businesses by providing consulting on succession or transition planning. On many occasions, David has provided clients with guidance on reading and understanding monthly financial statements in order to increase their awareness of the inner-workings of their business. By employing outside-the-box thinking, he once helped a client divide their entity into two corporations, resulting in significant tax savings and financial growth.

David and his wife, Beckie, currently reside in Garden City, Kansas. In his spare time, he enjoys watching hockey and lacrosse and attending the annual Jimmy Buffett concert.
