Dave graduated from Kewaskum High School in 1957. A high school highlight was being a member of the Valley Tri-County Conference championship basketball team, in the 1955-1956 season.

In July 1957, Dave entered the Air Force and was stationed in Lincoln, NE. He worked on B-47s in Lincoln and learned to play golf. After the Air Force, Dave got into computer programming. He worked in Texas for 6 years before moving back to Wisconsin.

Dave met Marlene Steinhardt at a camping trip for single parents.  The two were united in marriage on June 23, 1973, and combined their lives into a blended family of 10. They made their home together in the Town of Farmington. He owned a landscaping business for many years before going back to computer programming. He was a consultant for various companies before retiring in 2001.

He coached Pony League baseball teams for Boltonville for several years.

He enjoyed spending winters with Marlene at La Hacienda Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona, where he filled his days playing golf, bocce ball, shuffleboard, and volleyball. Dave even got a hole-in-one while golfing out there!

Dave enjoyed golf, gardening, and traveling, in that order. He passed those joys on to his children, but alas, not his green thumb.

David is survived by children, Scott (Janine) Prost-Domasky, Mark (Tami) Domasky, Mark (Mary) Steinhardt; Cindy (Mark) Schaefer; Bruce (Donna) Steinhardt; Jeff (Cindy) Steinhardt; Mike Steinhardt;.
