    Our sympathy to the family of Steve Quesenberry. I worked for Steve’s dad, Pete, in the appliance store many years ago. The last years we would see Steve working in security at Jackpot. He was always friendly and we’d stop to chat about the family. May God surround you with loving arms to comfort you in the loss of your dad, grandpa and brother. Blessed be his memory.
    In sympathy, John and Diane Woodford

  4. Bill Geffrey says:

    Having gone to school together, I still recall some enjoyable times shared with Stephen.
    My hope is that in time all the good memories you have will bring comfort to you.

  5. Larry Gilb says:

    As we age, our priorities in life shift and many of our memories take on a much more important role. Steve and I started school together in kindergarten and graduated together with the RFHS class of 1960. I hadn’t seen him in years, as our lives went in different directions, but I remember him well and was saddened to hear of his passing. My condolences to you all at this difficult time.

    My thoughts and prayers to the Quesenberry family, they were a second family to me in my youth

  7. Merlin Scharfe says:

    I have not seen or chatted with Steve for many, many years. What I remember is that Virgil Sales, our phy. ed. coach, made us choose partners to wrestle (sp?) in one of the classes. Well, Steve and I got paired up. I always liked Steve and appreciated his talents. He was also a mild mannered guy. Well, when we started to wrestle he came at me so fast that I can’t remember how I got on the floor on my back! I guess he was less mild mannered than I thought! Jean Nelson Scharfe (who also graduated with Steve) and me, Merlin Scharfe, give you our deepest sympathy. It is a difficult time for your family. Take care and God Bless. Merlin and Jean Scharfe

  8. Galyn Minkel says:

    Steve will be miss not only by the employees here but from our guests as well. Our thoughts and prayers to the family. Blessed be his memory.

  9. Travis Van Slooten says:

    My condolences to the entire Quesenberry family. I have many fond memories of Steve. I remember our nightly “philosophical talks” we used to have when I lived there. Steve always got a kick out of those and so did I. And I remember the camping trips and trips to watch the Vikings. I still remember that day on the way home from a Vikings game Steve took Jason and me to Kube’s family restaurant on the way back home. “Just the guys” going out to eat in the “big city” was a big deal and I can remember it like it was yesterday. He was a good man and I always enjoyed his company. He will be missed.
