David "Dave" Edward Steadman, Jr.

David "Dave" Edward Steadman, Jr., 58, lost his battle with lung cancer on July 29, 2020 at his home in Elizabethtown. He was born July 21, 1962 in Greenville, PA but grew up in Orangeville, OH. Dave graduated from Badger High School in 1980, then proudly served 12 years in the U.S. Army. Dave was stationed at Fort Knox and Germany and deployed to Berlin, Germany, and Kuwait (Desert Shield/ Desert Storm). David was a decorated solider with 4 bronze stars. He worked 4 short years at Kentucky Concrete and went on to work 25 at Dana/Metalsa where he became a tool and die maker and made so many wonderful friends. Dave was a man of few words but showed his love for his family and friends through kind gestures. You could always expect a smile on his face with a witty comment to follow. His hands were never idle; he always found a project to tinker with. He put his heart and soul into everything he did. Family was one of the most important things in his life. Dave was a loving husband, devoted father, caring brother, amazing son, wonderful uncle, and a doting grandparent.
