Sad News About Jim Steele
« on: September 12, 2018, 01:04:26 PM »
I received an email from a family member that Jim Steele passed away this morning [ September 12, 2018 ]



Obituary for Jimmie Steele
 
Jimmie D. Steele, of Springfield, Missouri, age 85, passed away September 12, 2018 at Cox South Hospital. He was born December 26, 1932, in Pattonsburg, Missouri, the son of Anna Mae Steele. He was joined in marriage August 15, 1966 to the love of his life, Bronice Yates.

Jim was a retired truck driver and an avid big rig enthusiast. Jim had a love for horses, dogs, classic country & western music and family. Jim was a practical jokester, who enjoyed sharing his orneriness with others. The word stranger was not in he vocabulary, he met friends everywhere he traveled.

He was preceded in death by his mother Anna Mae Lopez and grandparents Roy and Lennie Steele, who raised him.

Jim is survived by, Bronice (Yates) Steele, his wife of 54 years; children Tracy Harrison (J.R.) of Grants, New Mexico, Chessie A. Robbins of Denair, CA, and William R Young (Mary) of Plato, MO; 4 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, 2 great-great-grandchildren; brothers Gene England (Bonnie) of Riverside, CA, Kenneth England (Lee) of Lewis, Delaware; as well as, several nieces and nephews and too many friends to mention.

A memorial service will be held at Kingsway Free Will Baptist Church, 2615 North Park Avenue, Springfield, Missouri on Monday, September 17, 2018 at 2:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to your local humane society.

To send flowers or a memorial gift to the family of Jimmie Steele please visit our Sympathy Store.
 
On September 17, 2018 I received a photo from Jim Steele's niece, with this message.

"This is the last picture Uncle Jim took on August 26th on the way home from our family reunion."
