Kindle on June 18, 1979, in Mount Vernon, Illinois, and she preceded him in death on January 22, 2005.  He then married Patricia Lueking on December 2, 2006 in rural Hoffman, Illinois, and she preceded him in death on June 26, 2017.

Stephen was of the Methodist faith.  He was a member of the Centralia Moose Family Center 1219, Centralia Elks B.P.O.E. 493 and Carlyle Veteran of Foreign Wars Post 3523.  Stephen enjoyed sitting out in the backyard with his family and friends, taking in a beverage and eating barbeque.  He loved being outside, especially camping.  Stephen was a good storyteller, and had a good sense of humor, which created a lot of laughter.  He never met a stranger.  Stephen loved his furry friends, Sandy, Ginger, and Diego.  He cherished the time he spent with his family and loved being with his grandkids.

Stephen graduated with Salem High School’s “Class of 1966.”  After graduating from high school, he worked with his father on the family farm.  In the early 1980’s, he started as a truck driver working for various companies throughout the years.  He worked for Beelman Truck Company in Carlyle, Illinois, for 10 years until 2009 when he retired after an accident.
