I had the privilege of working with david for 10 years as an AUSA in the Greenville Office. He was kind, he had a great sense of humor, and he was a heck of a prosecutor. As a young lawyer, I knew that as long as David was around everything was going to be OK. I offer my prayers and my condolences to his family. Goodbye my friend.

My mom was a court reporter in US District Court. Her favorite DA was David. She knew him and worked with him for a very long time. As a kid I remember her mentioning him very fondly. When she retired in ‘95 and I took over her position as a court reporter, he became my favorite also. He was so friendly and welcoming and also remembered my mom so fondly. I truly enjoyed working with him for almost 20 years and hearing his stories from years past. I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers and I know you will truly miss him. He was a wonderful man and I could tell from the way he talked about his family he truly loved you all. So sorry for your loss.

Dearest Stephens Family, surely you are hurting to have lost a husband, father, and brother so dear.  I pray that you find comfort in David's legacy, as a man of faith, as an American committed to the justice system, and someone deeply and genuinely committed to his loving family.  In Heaven, by the side of our Father, David will surely continue to serve as he did in his days here on Earth.  Working with David, being mentored as I entered the federal court house in Anderson for the first time, having his friendship, guidance and support have made me a better lawyer, and I will carry those lessons for my lifetime and beyond as those lessons continue to be shared.  God's peace to you.  AUSA Beth Drake

I enjoyed his energy.  I worked with Mr. Stephens and when I would visit the Greenville Office he always made me laugh. He will be missed.  RIP Sir. Machelle Heyward

I had the good fortune of working with David while I was a US Probation Officer..  His rate of prosecutions kept out office staffed in lean budget. He was a deep thinker with keen sense of right and wrong. Good Man.

I have known David for all the 51 years that he and my Sister, Janeen were married.
To me, David was a private person, but, he must have been a very honest man because my sister is that way.
The last time I spoke with him was just before my youngest brother passed away.
I am very saddened for Janeen and her loss.
My Lord, please take care of David, he deserves it.
