David was born on March 31, 1952 to Warren and Gracie Iona (Beall) Streigle in Washington, Iowa. David was a graduate of Sigourney High School's class of 1970. After high school David joined the Iowa National Guard and served until 1976. After his time in the Guard, David was married and his daughter Stephanie was born. On November 8, 1986 he was united in marriage to the love of his life Kathy Sharp in New Sharon, Iowa. He would later adopt Kathy's children and raise them as his own. David's first love was his family, he enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren.
David's life work surrounded his love for the automotive industry. His long work history with Ford Dealerships spilled over into a personal hobby. His 1971 Ford Torino GT in Grabber Blue became his favorite lifelong project and eventually won many trophies and awards at car shows.
David touched many lives during his short time and will be remembered fondly by all of those who could call him a friend. He was gifted with the ability to talk to anyone like they were old friends just reliving a fond memory. He enjoyed taking trips and seeing the world with his family, and loved to look back on the memories through photo albums thoughtfully prepared by his sister, Karen.
David is survived by his wife of 33 years Kathy; children; son: Chris (Andrea) Streigle of Iowa and their children Tarron, Triston, and Tayanna, son: Tony (Robin) Streigle of Iowa and their children; Madison Jeno (Tristan), Blake, Aliya, Gabby, Evy, and Malachi, daughter: Stephanie (Michael) Sorum of Nebraska and their children, Caden and Delaney, and daughter: Monica (Doug) Bland of Colorado and their children, Casandra and Devin. David also leaves behind his sisters Janet (Gary), Martin, and Karen (Frank) Liebl, and many nieces and nephews. Not to be left out is Dave's beloved Toby David who often served as his unofficial service dog and remained a faithful companion for the last 16 years.
David was preceded in death by his parents Warren and Iona Streigle and his in-laws James and Bernice Sharp.

I had the pleasure knowing Dave as we played percussion together in the Sigourney H.S. band. Dave was a Sr. and 1st chair of the perc. section. I was a green incoming Freshman. Dave was always so kind and helpful, showing me the ropes as section leader, ie: letting me play parts that he could have played, organizing all the parts of the many percussion instruments. Dave was a great mentor and example for me as I became 1st chair percussion after Dave graduated in 1970.
I live in GA. now and was saddened to read of Dave’s passing. My condolences to his surviving family and friends. May God surround you with His peace and love at this time. Dave was a fun, great guy and friend!
