REED CITY — Darold (Dean) Steig, 77, of Reed City, passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, March 5, 2016.
He was born on July 6, 1938, to Herald and Mary (Rowley) Steig. Dean started driving trucks when he was just 17 years old. He had driven for 60 years, and loved every minute of it. Trucking was his passion, life and his livelihood. He loved seeing all the different states and scenery. Also, he enjoyed going to a restaurant or truck stop for some coffee, and nine times out of 10 there was always someone he knew from trucking. He loved sitting there and shooting the breeze with whomever, swapping trucking stories, and Lord knows, he had thousands of them.
