Steven L. Pfeifer, 61, of Moline, died suddenly on Wednesday, May 1, 2013, at Loyola University Health System, Chicago.
A celebration of Steve's life is at 7 p.m. Monday at Trimble Funeral and Cremation Center, Moline. Visitation is 4 to 7 p.m. Memorials may be made to the family.
Steve was born on Oct. 17, 1951, in Alton, Ill., the son of Glenn Albert Jr. and Dorris Mary Icenogle Pfeifer. He graduated from Rock Island High School. He married Karen Ann Neumann on March 17, 1981, in Rock Island.
He worked for King Food Service as a truck driver for 11 years, retiring because of health in 2012. Prior to that, he worked for Dav N Rock Meat and Poultry as a driver and warehouse manager.
Family and friends were the most important thing to Steve. He was active with his children as they grew up, coaching his daughter's softball team from Dad's Club all the way through high school, even coaching the team for one year after she graduated. His granddaughter, Anika, or his "Cutie Pie" as he called her, was his pride and joy! He loved to ride and clean his motorcycle and made many close friends through his hobby. He also enjoyed being outside and doing yard work.
Steve is survived by his wife of 31 years, Karen; children, Kari and Kip Pfeifer; a granddaughter, Anika Pfeifer, all of Moline; a sister, Pam Bishop, Macomb, Ill.; and many nieces, nephews and close friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Glenn Pfeifer Jr.; and his mother, Dorris Connor.
