Steven Compton, fearless fighter, passed away on July 28th, 2018 after a brave and courageous
battle with addiction.
He was born on July 7th 1995 in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, son of Terry and Mike Compton. Steven
graduated from Fond du Lac High School in 2013. His travels began shortly after graduation,
taking him on journeys to places all over the country. California held a special place in his heart
and he often spoke of returning there someday. He returned to Wisconsin in 2017 where he
was able to spend time with his family and friends. He channeled his adventurous spirit with
fishing, camping, playing guitar, listening to the Grateful Dead and loving his faithful dog,
Steven is survived by his parents, Terry and Mike Compton; siblings, Jenny (Jason) and their two
children, Tyler and Ashley Hills, Gary (Erin) Wickert, Amanda (John) and their three children,
Landon, Izzie and Nora Karls, Christopher (Nicole) Aronson and their two children, Even and
Hayden, Erin Compton and her daughter, Ellie; special friend, Gloria Cabrera; paternal
grandmother, Pat Compton; and many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Arthur and Marilyn Wells and paternal
grandfather, Kenneth Compton.
Steven was selfless in many ways. He did not measure success by material things. Steven’s
sensitive soul and infinite love provided wealth in a way most of us will never experience. His
kindness, loving heart and gentle spirit were cherished by those honored enough to have loved
and been loved by him.
Steven, you fought a brave and courageous battle with an opponent that was never fair.
Addiction may have taken your body but your love and light are with us and we are forever
grateful and blessed to have had you with us for 23 years. Your opponent may have robbed us
of time but it could never come close to altering the depth of our love for you. You are loved.
For the rest of our days, in all our breaths, and in all our steps, our love for you continues to
journey on. We love you always, Steven.
