David Ivan "Mondavi" Stuckey, was born on April 10, 1984, in Fort Worth, TX, to David Frizzell and Laverne T. Wardlow. David moved to South Bend, IN where he received his formal education through South Bend Community Schools graduating from Clay High School.
He was a man defined by his infectious smile and unwavering spirit. He brought joy that was contagious towards everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. David worked as a general laborer at Lippert Components and Steel Wearhouse. He was the kind of man who never shied away from a challenge. He faced every task with an unyielding perseverance. Dr. Seuss once said, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." This quote encapsulates David's approach to life, a man who faced every day with a grin on his face, leaving behind a legacy of love laughter and loyalty. "Mondavi" had many hobbies including but not limited to riding his motorcycles, making sure his cars were in pristine condition while cruising around town listening to his music. You could hear David coming from blocks away. When he pulled up on you David would have the cheekiest grin on his face only to reply with "huh". He enjoyed hanging with friends and family but most of all David loved being a father to his children.
