October 12, 1953 - May 28, 2018

Steve was born October 12, 1953 to Clarence and Carmona (Engebretson) Remick.  He grew up and attended school in Mabel.  Steve was a truck driver for most of his life, a job he loved.  He was most recently employed by Kruckow Rock Products in Caledonia but was forced to retire in 2014 when he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. 

On June 12, 1997 he married Elizabeth (Rogne) Doely which officially joined their families into one.  Steve loved spending time with his children and grandchildren and shared his many hobbies and interests with them.  The grandkids loved to spend time with Grandpa “with no adult supervision”.  

He was a member of the Rochester Astronomy Club and his interest in astronomy led to many hours of study and stargazing.  He was also a member of the Armadillos.  Steve loved music and taught himself to play the guitar “with a little help from his friends”.  He loved nature and being outdoors, watching science and history programs, the Vikings and Twins and, of course, Seinfeld.  Steve had the gift of gab and could talk to anyone about anything.  He made friends wherever he went.

Steve passed away Monday, May 28, 2018 at Tweeten Health Care in Spring Grove at the age of 64.  His time at Tweeten Health Care was filled with stories, laughter and loving care by family, friends and a wonderful staff.
