David Michael Stade was born the son of Richard and Marilyn (Seeley) Stade on Tuesday, November 9, 1965 in Escanaba, MI.
David grew up and received his early education in Gladstone, MI graduating from high school there. In 1988, David married and later divorced. He graduated from Western Michigan University in 1989 with a degree in Print Management. After graduation he moved to Portland, Oregon, where he enjoyed the Pacific Northwest area that he loved so well. David worked for a local printing firm, later going to S.M.M.S. for thirteen years, where he became a manager. When S.M.M.S. closed, he worked for Premier Press, where he was the Print Coordinator.
When my family moved to Gladstone in ’72 I had the pleasure to get to know the Stade family when we lived on the Bluff. I will keep you all in my prayers.
Traverse City, MI
I grew up just down the road from David and Mark and played alot of football on the golf coarse behind their house on the bluff. Many memories of playing sports and riding the bus to school with those guys. My thoughts and prayers are with the Stade family.
