Our beloved husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend returned home to his Heavenly Father Oct. 15, 2021, after a long and valiant battle with numerous health problems. Dave was born April 14, 1965, to Verna M. Prince and David V. LaBadie in Tooele, Utah.
Dave married the love of his life Brenda Rupp on Aug. 1, 1997, in Tooele, Utah. They were sealed for time and all eternity Jan. 22, 2009. They were blessed with three children whom he adored.
Dave had a passion for all genres of music and attending concerts was something he really loved. If you ever had a question about a certain song, whether it was a lyric or the artist, he was definitely the one to go to. He would often quiz his family on musical facts.
Before he became too ill to travel, Dave loved to take his family on vacations. He especially enjoyed their trips to Disneyland. He treasured time spent with his friends during their many poker nights and river rafting trips. But above all else, Dave loved his family. He cherished his wife and children and was very much looking forward to the upcoming birth of his grandson.
Dave was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He had a strong faith and believed in the power of prayer. He held many positions, but especially liked the time he spent working with the young men and the adventures they experienced together.
Dave is survived by his wife; children Courtney (Nathan Craven), MacKenzie, and Josh; his sister Nancy (Chuck) Watkins; and many other family members and friends who love him and whom he loved. He was preceded in death by his sister Jody, his father, and his grandparents.
