Steven P. Sager
Steven P. Sager of Fond du Lac
died on May 17, 2020 following complications related to COVID-19. He valiantly
fought blood cancer for months, and his fight continued to the very end. He was
76 years old.
Steve was born on November 20,
1943 to Fred and Cloris Sager of West Bend. He attended West Bend High School
and went on to Valparaiso University, which is where he met his dearly departed
wife of 51 years, Mimi. The couple married in 1966 and relocated to Boulder,
Colorado where Steve pursued a degree in law. Upon completion of his degree, he
and Mimi returned to the Fond du Lac area where he began his career as a
lawyer. Steve poured himself into his practice and tirelessly served his
clients for more than 50 years, never fully retiring.
Steve was a loving husband and
father, doting grandfather, and loyal friend with a generous and kind heart. He
was completely devoted to his family and his profession. He was a long-time
member and servant of Hope Lutheran Church. Steve enjoyed photography and was
often behind the camera at family gatherings. He loved the outdoors and was an
avid hunter and fisherman. He and Mimi had a passion for travel, but he also
had a deep appreciation for the simple pleasures of life, seeming most content
grilling in the backyard with a gimlet in his hand, golden retriever at his
feet, and country music on the stereo.
Above all, Steve was a man of
great faith who placed complete trust and confidence in the grace and love of
his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He will be dearly missed.
Steve is survived by his daughter
Kathy (Dan) Hoffmann of Elm Grove, WI; sons Matt (Julie) Sager of Madison, WI,
Paul (Tara) Sager of Appleton, WI, David (Stacey) Sager of Hamilton, MT; nine
grandchildren, and his sister Marge Klug of Kewaskum, WI.
Steve is preceded in death by
his parents, Fred and Cloris Sager; brother, Don Sager; and wife, Mimi.

to be determined.
