Eric D. Steiner

April 17, 1990 — August 13, 2022

Eric Steiner of Winnebago, IL passed away on August 13, 2022, at the age of 32. Eric married the love of his life on September 28, 2019, which remains as the happiest day of his life. Eric was a man of many hobbies that he put his whole heart into. Eric enjoyed spending his time on green fields, either golfing or watching the Packers play on Lambeau Field with his best friend. He was also an avid fisherman, with his wife, no matter what the temperature was. Not only did he love being outdoors, he had a special love of music. He loved everything from musical theatre to Bob Dylan. He would also tell everyone that Lebron is the G.O.A.T.
Eric leaves behind the love of his life; Jodi Steiner (Rappa), parents; Kathleen and Barry Greenberg, grandmother; Mary Steiner, sisters; Hannah Greenberg, and Cacy (Ryan) Stueck/Ostenson, nieces; Elizabeth, Ryley, Tessa, and Juliana, cousins; Carla, Mark, Jeff (Sherri), Greg (Linda), Brent (Anjali), and Brandon (Amber) Tietz, in-laws; John (Ann) Rappa, sister; Andrea (Enrique) Sotelo, nieces and nephews; Adrian, Elena, Luisa, Anthony, and Alexia, best friend; Jose (Haley) Galarza, goddaughter; Luisa C., fur babies; Opal and Olive Steiner, and a plethora of people whose hearts he touched. He is to be reunited with his maternal grandparents; Marie and Ronnie Layng, father; Dennis Steiner, and special aunts and uncle; Patricia and Harold Tietz, and Jayne Stueck. The family wishes to thank the nurses and doctors in the ICU at Swedish American/UW Hospital for their outstanding efforts and thoughtful care.
