He grew up in the Wilmer-Hutchins, Texas area, graduating from Wilmer-Hutchins high school where he played percussion in marching band and was a winner of several math competitions. He embraced his love of world history as well, always quick to answer questions about the flags of foreign countries, dates and details of famous wars and battles; not only in American history but World history. He attended Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas. David was somewhat of a night owl, so he worked in security and later machine operating; working with printed materials for Gaylord Containers. He was a simple man that marched to the beat of his own drum. He enjoyed watching movies and playing video games: known by many as “Lonewolf”. He also participated on many occasions in Civil War reenactments, curating many costumes and authentic weapons over the years. He was also a talented painter of miniature battlefields which included: men, vehicles, horses and other meticulously detailed accessories. He was incredibly smart with a bit of a strange humor and loved to debate politics with the best of them. He will be missed by all who knew him.
He is preceded in death by his parents and infant brother Benjamin Stegman.
He is survived by his brothers: Brian and wife Mary Stegman of Palmer, Texas and Paul Gregory Prasifka of Cedar Park, Texas; nieces and nephews: Kimberly Nicole Stegman of Palmer, Texas, Lauren Michelle and husband Benjamin Beech of Atlanta, Georgia, Benjamin Prasifka of Austin, Texas and Andrew Prasifka of Cedar Park, Texas.
