Our deepest sympathy to the Steichen Family. We will always remember and cherish our memories of Bill. The walks on the beach, time spent with him at the computer. If we ever needed help, Bill was always there to give a hand. We will miss our very dear friend.

To the Steichen Family, I just heard from Mom that Bill had passed away and that the funeral was today. I am truly sorry for your loss. Please extend my condolences to the family. I do remember fishing with Bill on Big Muskelunge Lake and asking if there were any otter in the area and five minutes later two baby otters appeared. We didn't catch many fish but had a good time. That will be one of my favorite memories, along with the smell of pipe tobacco. Again, you all have my condolences and my hope that your sorrow will be with happy memories.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mary Ann It was lovely to see you at my mother's memorial service! I only wish I could have been there for you and your family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Bill has just accepted the biggest promotion in his entire life! He was a man of faith, and that example touches many more people than we could ever imagine. GodSpeed Bill! God Bless the Steichens!
