Obituary for Stephen "Steve" Earl Fey

Stephen "Steve" Earl Fey, 76, of Aberdeen was called home to the Lord on September 2nd, 2019. Visitation will be on Thursday from 5 to 7 with a prayer service at 7pm at Spitzer-Miller Funeral Home. A celebration of his life will be held at 1PM on Friday, September 6th, at New Life Church in Aberdeen. As per Steve’s wishes, he will be cremated following his service with a private interment at a later date.

Steve was born on September 28, 1942 to Earl and Bessie(Lerew) Fey. He was the 3rd of 6 children who enjoyed being raised on a farm in rural Brentford. He attended school in Brentford.

Steve married Jan Irvine in 1961 and three children were born to this union. He was very mechanical and made a career in mechanics, truck driving and maintenance. He also enjoyed collecting many things and going “bumming”.

Steve married Donna Fliehe on Jan. 27th, 1990. This marriage united 2 families and led to more years of gardening, camping, traveling, and attending kids and grandkids activities. They enjoyed their homes in Cresbard, Pierre and Aberdeen. You could always stop by Grandpa’s to enjoy a ride in the wagon behind his tractor. He was a true outdoorsman who trapped, hunted and fished every chance he could get. His sense of humor will leave lasting memories on all who knew him.

Grateful for having shared in his life are his loving wife of 29 years, Donna, Sons Lonny Fey of Ashton, Casey (Malinda) Fey of Ashton, Daughter Kerry Richardson of Rapid City, 8 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. He is also survived by stepchildren Teresa Stoner of Gillette, WY, Kevin (Brenda) Herren of Aberdeen and Tracy Herren of Denver, CO as well as many stepgrandchildren, his sister Laurietta Matheny, Dell Rapids, brother Bob (Ann) Fey,Brookings, and several nieces and nephews.
