We remember Dave as a dedicated man of faith, a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, and as a clever craftsman and gifted builder. For over 40 years, he served the lakeshore community through his business, Quality Builders. We cherish our collective memories of family gatherings, church softball games, mission trips, building projects, holidays at Pokagon State Park, card games, wood puzzles, and time spent in his workshop. We miss his thoughtfulness, compassion, and his voice, imparting both playful banter and quiet wisdom. His life of integrity, his humility and generosity continue to inspire us.

He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 49 years, Lou (Haverdink) Sternberg; his children, Michael (Laura) Sternberg; Katie Waurio, Jennifer (Joseph) Puplis, Kelsey Sternberg; grandchildren, Sylvia, Gracie, Andrew, Claire, Henry, Ruby, George, and Charlie; his mother, Goldie Sternberg; siblings, Larry (Bette) Sternberg, Pat (Mark) Reuschel, Jane (Dan) Slagh; in-laws, Orma (Harv) Jipping, Karl (Rhonda) Haverdink; nieces, nephews, and many dear friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Ted Sternberg.

Visitation with the family is scheduled for 5:00-8:00 PM on Thursday, August 12, 2021, in the Commons at Ridge Point Community Church, 340 104th Ave. Holland, MI 49423, where he was a member. Please use lower Drive 3, Entrance F.

Per Dave's wishes, cremation has taken place and a Memorial service will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, August 13, 2021, also at Ridge Point Community Church. Please use lower Drive 3, Entrance F.

In lieu of flowers, our family would welcome contributions to Hospice of Holland, in Dave's memory.
