Alan Steiber

Alan Frederick Steiber, born August 17, 1948 in Waukon and residing much of his life in Lansing, passed away October 7, 2022. A Celebration of Alan’s life will be held this Sunday, November 6 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at The Old Rossville Store, 851 Volney Road, rural Waukon. In lieu of flowers, the Alan Steiber Memorial has been established.

Alan was a 1966 graduate from Kee High School, and he attended WWTC and Winona State University. During his lifetime he owned and operated a Lansing service station and worked 42 years at the Lansing Interstate Power Company. Since his retirement, he has enjoyed raising dogs with his wife, Terisa.

His infectious smile and robust personality live on through his friends and family. An ever-present member of the Lansing community, notably seen driving RV-sized cars, he enjoyed camping and horseback riding, particularly if those activities led him to South Dakota.

Alan had a natural willingness to help anyone in their time of need. At home he enjoyed working on, but never seeming to completely fix, historic (old) cars. He was always quick to start and long to end a story. His family and friends will always feel his presence.

He is survived by his wife, Terisa (Winters) Steiber; his children from his first marriage (Esther Steiber-Whitney, deceased 1993): Kit (Steiber) Baloun, Seth Steiber, Aja (Steiber) Sickles; and son, Luke Steiber; his grandchildren, Lilian, Samuel, Thomas, Juni, Eli, Autumn, Maverick and Zazie; and his siblings, Byron Steiber, Cheryl (Steiber) Blythe and Daryl Steiber.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frederick Steiber and Marjorie (Maust) Steiber; and his brother, Eric Steiber.
