Steve was preceded in death by his parents Bernard “Beanie” and Betty Lusch; sister Ann Lusch; and brothers Mike Lusch, and Phil Lusch.
Steve was a skilled carpenter and previous owner of Lusch Construction, later working as an independent contractor. He loved his time outdoors, hunting for mushrooms, arrowheads, and wild game. Steve had a green thumb and could grow anything in his garden. He liked to go out and spend the day fishing and relaxing by the water. Steve became instant friends with everyone, as he never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with anyone. He had a huge, compassionate heart and would give the shirt off his back if someone needed it. Steve was the best grandpa and was happy to share how proud of his grandchildren he was. Family was of the most importance to Steve and the moments spent with them were his most treasured. Steve will be remembered as a hard worker, a friend to all, and a generous family man, who will be deeply missed.
