David grew up in Wellsburg, Iowa, attended Reinbeck High School, and graduated from Hawkeye Tech in 1973. He started his career farming his father's land while also at B&B Concrete outside of Hudson where he resided and raised his family. He was well known around the farming community as he dedicated his work to the Farmer's Cooperative (Heartland Co-op) in Reinbeck for 29 years. He enjoyed being involved in the church choir, maintaining his garden and entire acreage, and ensuring the snowmobiles were always in working order. His biggest joys were teaching his children life's lessons and watching them succeed in music, school and sports. He was never shy about the pride that he had for all that they accomplished.
Survived by his loving children, Daniel & Kati Van Heiden and Karen & Joel Feder; admiring grandchildren, Abby Bailey, Noah Skornia, Hunter Van Heiden, Karson Van Heiden, and Raya Feder; his siblings Jeanette Merrill, Jerald (Connie) Van Heiden, Benjamin (Judy) DeVries, Richard (Vickie) Van Heiden, Merna (Larry) Lovell, Laurie (Don) Diehm, Kenneth (Barb) Van Heiden; sister-in-laws Caroline DeVries and Kay Van Heiden.
David was preceded in death by parents, Ben & Alice (Abbas) Van Heiden; brothers LaVern Van Heiden & Jerry DeVries.
