ELKHORN, NE -- Larry Joseph Steier was born on Feb. 17, 1962 in Sioux City. He grew up in Whittemore where he attended grade school and graduated from Garrigan High School in 1980. Larry graduated from Iowa State University in 1984 before receiving his Law Degree from Creigh-ton University in 1988.
As a young boy, Larry was active in football and track but his true interest was the water. He loved boating and water sports of all kinds especially skiing and wake boarding. When he wasn't on the water, Larry enjoyed spending time with his beloved dog, Charlie.
Larry married LuAnn Schenck on Aug. 4, 1984 at St. Cecilia's Catholic Church in Algona and they were blessed with three children: Nicole, Nathan and Matthew. Larry and LuAnn have lived in Ames and Omaha, NE.
Larry spent the last 22 years of his career at AGP where he was Senior Vice President and General Counsel. Larry was a kind and gentle man, patient and humble with a dry sense of humor.
Larry passed away on Sunday, June 8, 2014 at his home in Omaha, NE with his family at his side at the age of 52 years. Larry fought a brave eight-year battle with cancer and kept his faith through it all.
He is survived by his wife LuAnn; daughter Nicole Steier of Omaha, NE; sons Nathan and Matthew Steier both of Omaha, NE; his parents, Elmer and Beanie Steier of Whittemore; and his sister and brother-in-law, Kay and Denny Meyer of Milford.
