Steven Schoen, 64 year old resident of Little Falls died Sunday, October 11 at the St. Cloud Hospital.

Steven Vincent Schoen was born on March 8, 1956 the son of Willard and Evelyn (Weers) Schoen of Benson, Minnesota. Steve grew up on the farm north of Murdock and graduated from Murdock High school in 1974. He then attended Granite Falls Technical College and graduated with a degree in Industrial Electronics in 1976. Steve married the love of his life, Ruth Wickeraad on May 19, 1979. The couple raised their children, Patrick and Amanda in Montevideo and moved to Little Falls in 2010.

Steve worked for several electronic manufacturing companies over the years, most recently Nortech Systems in Merrifield, Minnesota. When Steve was not working, he could be found outdoors. He loved the change of seasons, taking advantage of the weather going fishing or gardening. Steve used his talents and creativeness making log furniture and also was the talented chef of the household. Often the couple would host large family gatherings, where Steve would do all of the cooking, trying new recipes and types of food. Steve and his family would spend as much time as possible at their lake cabin bonding as a family or having friends out to relax. These same people most near and dear to Steves heart, were who he and Ruth traveled all over with making memories to last a lifetime. Steve was a kind and gentle soul who was always willing to help others. He loved his family with his whole heart but Steves greatest joy in life was being grandpa to Ayla, Nora and Kiptyn.

Steve passed away suddenly at the St. Cloud Hospital on Sunday, October 11, 2020. He was 64 years old. Steve is survived by his wife of 41 years, Ruth; children, Amanda (Dave) Hlad of Randall, Patrick (Kelsey) Schoen of Nevis; grandchildren, Ayla and Nora Hlad and Kiptyn Schoen; siblings, John (Aline McFadden) Schoen of Dunedin, Florida, Bob (Janie) Schoen of Willmar, Chuck (Barb) Schoen of Crystal; many nieces, nephews and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Willard and Evelyn Schoen; siblings, Jerry Schoen, Tom Schoen, Marge Kapsch; Brother-in-law, Paul Kapsch; sister-in-law, Jacquie Schoen; nephews, Tony Schoen and Jeff Peterson.

Due to the covid pandemic, a memorial service for Steve will take place at a later date.
