Obituary for David Wayne Sturtz

David Wayne Sturtz, 58, of North Liberty, passed away Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. A gathering of family and friends will be held from 4-6 PM on Thursday, June 14, 2018 followed by a Celebration of Life Service at Lensing’s Oak Hill, 210 Holiday Rd. Coralville.

Dave was born April 1, 1960 in Cedar Rapids, IA, the son of Darrell and Joan Sturtz of rural Alburnett, IA. He graduated from Alburnett high school before attending the University of Iowa where he received a finance degree. Dave was united in marriage to Lisa Juhnke on September 15, 1990 in North Liberty where they raised their two kids.

Dave had an unwavering passion for sports through coaching, cheering, watching, following, and supporting his two kids and their teammates. A diehard fan of the Cardinals and Packers, he could never miss a game on TV, while he knew every detail possible. The Cardinals 2011 World Championship run and the heroics of Aaron Rodgers were some of his favorite memories.

Playing board and card games with his family and friends gave Dave great enjoyment and brought out his competitive spirit. His favorites among many included Backgammon, Sequence, Rummy 500, Cribbage, and most of all Euchre. Dave loved doing crossword puzzles so much so he couldn’t move onto a new puzzle without finishing one. He was a lifelong gambler—including many casino visits, daily scratch off tickets, and Streak for the Cash through ESPN.

Dave is survived by his parents, Darrell and Joan Sturtz of Marion, IA, sister Sherri Sturtz of Marion, IA, brother Mike Sturtz (daughter Delaney Sturtz) of Alburnett, IA; his wife, Lisa Sturtz of North Liberty, IA, their daughter Brianna Sturtz of North Liberty, IA, their son Shane Sturtz of Iowa City, IA; his stepson Chad Smith (and wife Iilene Smith) of Mazomanie, WI and two step-grandsons Leo and Arlo Smith.

Memorial contributions can be made to the David Sturtz Memorial Fund and may be directed to Lensing Funeral Home.
