This afternoon, Atascosa County learned of the passing of one of their own, Atascosa County Emergency Management Coordinator David Prasifka.
Atascosa County officials have released a statement explaining that Prasifka lost his battle to the very disease he was fighting against and also had an underlying health condition that severely compromised his immune system.
“Today, July 4, 2020, Atascosa County lost a vital member of our team. Our Emergency Management Coordinator, David Prasifka passed away from the very disease he has been valiantly fighting against,” said county officials. “Prasifka worked diligently and passionately for Atascosa County and the citizens for many years, not only as EMO, but as a volunteer firefighter and fire chief in Jourdanton. Recently, David had been leading Atascosa County through the COVID-19 pandemic. His humor, heart, and passion for not only his EM job, but his family will be missed by many.”
At this time, funeral services have not been released.
The Pleasanton Express wishes to extend our sincere condolences to the Prasifka family. Please see this upcoming Wednesday’s issue for a front page story on David Prasifka.
