Phillip (Phil) Steffens, age 80 of St. Michael, passed away July 27th, following a brief illness. Known for his love of the out-of-doors, it was easy to engage Phil in conversation related to his hunting and fishing experiences.

Born March 8th 1932, the son of Phillip J. and Grace ( Roskowyk) Steffens of Monticello, Phil received his education while attending country school. With a twinkle in his eye, he proposed to and later married Shirley Ann Lindenfelser in 1955 and to this union was born two daughters, Sheila (Doug) Guimont of Elk River and Elaine
(Marlon) Weber of Rogers, four sons:
Jim (Kris) Steffens of St. Michael, John (Jeanine) Steffens of Maple Grove, Tom (Doris) Steffens of St. Michael and Ted Steffens of St. Michael. With a love of children, Phil and Shirley are blessed with twenty-two grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. Phil supported his family as an “Iron Worker” a proud member
of the local #512, was a member of the
“Knights of Columbus.” and a member St. Michael Catholic Church.

In addition to his immediate family, Phil is survived by three sisters: Alicia
Gertken, Jean Gutzwiller and Darlene Glennon. He was preceded in death by a daughter Amy Marie Steffens, his parents Phillip J.Steffens and Grace
(Roskowyk) Steffens, one brother Joe and five sisters: Anna Marie Kosloswk, Elda Hare, Kathryn Fouquette, Mary Chouinard and Corinne Bushel.

Phil was loved by many and will be missed by all!
