Steven Emil Raygor, 63, passed through heaven’s gates Tuesday, September 21, 2021, after a courageous battle of cancer at home alongside his wife.

Steve was born in Storm Lake and finished his schooling in Jefferson, IA. Steve was married to Diane Reichelt for 30 years and raised their children in Urbandale IA.

Steve always had a giving spirit and enjoyed helping family and friends with various home remodeling projects. He enjoyed fishing, gardening, and camping trips with his family. Written amongst his many tools and DIY projects, you will find his favorite biblical scripture, “In all things, give thanks.”

Also surviving are his four siblings, Leonard (Judy) Raygor, Barbara (Tom) Burns, Annalee Snizek and Rodney Raygor; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and their families. He was preceded in death by his father, John.
