Don Paul Steele, 70, of Battle Creek, Michigan, passed away on Monday, March 18, 2019. He was born on April 11, 1948, the son of the late D. Paul Steele and Ruth M. (Aagaard) Steele. He worked as a carpenter for over 30 years and was a member of local #525.

He always thought of others first. Don will be missed by all, and was loved by his family. He loved to spend time walking in the woods at his cabin up north, except in winter, when he would be in Florida. No matter where he was, north or south, he could see one of his favorite sights, The Sunset. Don enjoyed watching his grandchildren in their activities.

Ran into him and Lina at Silver Lake at the cottage we had so many good memories at. We talked about building houses, walks on the beach and in the dunes..sent time talking about dune buggies and his parents..a time when we were all so young and hopeful.....we laughed and remembered..I am so glad I drove down that little two track, as I do every year and they were there...God Speed Don Paul II
