Steve was born in Omaha to Mervin and Rita (Goodman) Stangl, and moved to Papillion as a small boy. After graduating from Papillion High School, he worked at a number of jobs in the Omaha area. His work reflected the ability to quickly develop wide-ranging talents. Steve was able to perform electrical, plumbing, construction and delicate woodworking projects. He also enjoyed working on his cars and trucks, and became an excellent gardener, especially with his roses, and the “greenies” (as he called the lawn). Steve met his wife, Laurie, in mid-town Omaha where they worked to restore an old neighborhood cottage. The couple later moved to Auburn where they once again worked to fix up an old farmhouse, and Steve became identified with his roses and flower beds, and the brick sidewalk he replaced around the house. Steve was known for his love of “head-banger” music, Hamm’s and Budweiser beer, Pepsi, and manning the grill. Quick to offer a hand when neighbors needed help, he was also known for playing ornery pranks when the opportunity arose.
Steve is dearly missed by his loving wife; his sister Mary (PJ) Roth of Omaha; brothers: Wayne (Kelly) Stangl of Silver City, IA; Timothy (Jane) Stangl of Bennington, NE; sister-in-law Linda (Bill) Kasprzak of Van Alstyne, TX; Aunts Lea, Kay, Jolene and Eileen; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins in Nebraska, Texas and Michigan.
