Ronald E. Steiner, May 14, 2023, at age 69.

Beloved husband of Cindy Wolff Steiner for 40 years; dear father of Laura and Dan (Klare); proud Grampster of Baker and Beckham Steiner; son of the late Jane and the late Arthur Steiner; son-in-law of the late William and the late Myra Wolff; dear brother-in-law of Andy Wolff (Dreama); adored uncle, cousin, friend and musician pal to many. Ron was a passionate family man first and foremost and a wonderfully talented musician.

Ron was born and raised in St. Louis and attended University City High School. He graduated from UMSL and enjoyed a long and successful career with Monsanto and later Pfizer. His unique sense of humor kept everyone laughing, and he was always full of surprises. Ron made the most of every situation and approached a new challenge with determination. He loved to travel and experience new places. Ron never met a stranger and returned from every journey having made a new friend. He was an incredible guitarist. As one of his good friends said, “Ron was a brilliant finger style guitarist and arranger. And an even nicer guy with a giant heart.” He had the honor of playing with some of the true greats, and performing at many special events.

Ron was an avid trout fisherman, loved a good hike and being in the great outdoors. He will be truly missed.
