OMAHA, Neb. — Dave Stahl, 64, peacefully passed away, holding his wife Christine’s hand on July 21, 2021, at his home in Omaha, Nebraska, after a brief struggle with brain cancer.
His funeral service will be held Saturday, August 7, at 11 a.m., at Saint Margaret Mary Catholic Parish in Omaha, Neb. Visitation with family will be held one hour prior to funeral service. Heafey Hoffmann Mortuary, Omaha Neb., will livestream the service at www.heafeyheafey.com.
Dave was born June 3, 1957, to Joe and Marj Stahl in Huron. He joined brothers, Jim (Suzie) Stahl, Huron; Jerry (Bobbi) Stahl, Eden Prairie, Minn., and was followed by sisters, Mary Jo Stahl, Plymouth, Minn., and Terri (Peter) Harris, Long Prairie, Minn.
Along with his dad and brother Jim, Dave participated in many local sporting activities. His love was skating. He was a member of the initial high school hockey team, the Huron All Stars. He was selected to multiple All State teams and was a member of the initial class of the Huron High School Hockey Hall of Fame. In later years Dave transferred this love to riding his Harley. He called it his “therapy”.
Dave made lifelong friends growing up in Huron before moving to Omaha in 1978. After a long courtship he married his wife Christine in 2002 and added stepchildren Mikki Barnes and Christian Carver, Omaha Neb., to his family.
Also grateful for having “the best Uncle Davey and Papa in the world” are his nephew, Joey Harris, Long Prairie, Minn.; nieces, Lacey (Jeremy) Thorsness with Hudsyn and Tyndall, Huron; Lavin (Logan) Kopfmann with Ella, Ramsey, Mason and Knox, Huron; Holly (Devin Bidwell) Harris, Wichita, Kan.; and Chelsey Harris, Long Prairie, Minn.; grandchildren, Anna and Jack Barnes, Issac and Luke Carver; and great-grandson, Charlie Barnes all of Omaha, Neb.
